Second 12lb baby dies in GPH delivery
-buried without permission after request for autopsy, says mother
Another mother is accusing the Georgetown Public Hospital of negligence after her 12 pound infant died during delivery and the hospital refused her request for an autopsy and buried the baby against her wishes.
Primary School teacher Pamela Lashley, 32, of Victoria, East Coast Demerara, told Stabroek News that she was forced to deliver her infant son vaginally on Friday morning. The woman said that she is convinced her baby died of a broken neck he suffered after his head protruded before she was taken to the delivery room. It is the second such case reported at the hospital ion the last week.
