Nurse suspended

Sunday, March 23 2014

The nurse suspected of sending Tahia Jordan home with her miscarried foetus in a black plastic bag has been suspended with basic salary pending further investigation.

This was stated yesterday in a media release from the North West Regional Health Authority (NWRHA).

Jordan, 23, of Trou Macaque, Laventille, was discharged from the Port-of-Spain General Hospital on Thursday where she was treated for a miscarriage. When she returned home, she discovered the bloody foetus of her unborn child in a plastic bag that contained her clothes.

Judith Ramoutar, chief executive officer of the NWRHA, under whose purview the hospital falls, was mandated by NWRHA’s chairman, Dr Edison Haqq, to conduct a full investigation.

Ramoutar said an initial report was given to Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan, where she revealed that proper protocol was not followed by the doctor or nurse.

“The names have been submitted to the minister and the proper action will be taken accordingly. “In the meantime the matter is still being investigated,” Ramoutar said.

Ramoutar said the NWRHA was intent on conducting a thorough investigation. Jordan is still receiving counselling.
