KHMH Apologizes for Fetus Under Hospital Bed for Three Days

vlcsnap-2014-06-03-22h04m08s150Over the past year, Belize’s Flagship Medical Institution, The Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, has never quite left the public spotlight.

Managing… or at least trying to cover “crisis after crisis”,  the Administration today issued another release,  an apology. Only this time, it is on the Foetus found under the bed in the Accident and Emergency room of the Hospital by a patient who complained of strong odours coming from under her bed.

The release says that the Hospital extend its sincerest apologies to those patients and members of the general public who have been negatively impacted by the recent discoveries of products of conception in our Accident and Emergency Department.”

The incident occurred last Friday May 30th, 2014, when, what the release now describes as, “products of conception” was reported. An internal and police investigation was immediately launched in accordance with the law. Again the Institution has admitted that [KHMH QUOTE 2]  “Our internal investigation revealed a clear link between a patient encounter and the product of conception, and sadly established that appropriate procedures were not followed.” The Release from KHMH ended by saying that they are committed to addressing the weaknesses revealed by the incident and intend to carry out appropriate disciplinary measures in keeping with the Hospital’s disciplinary procedures.//[
