Public hospital probe into 4-year-old’s death completed
The investigation into the death of four year old Jaden Mars who died at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) last week, several days after he was admitted for treatment for a bitten tongue, has been completed.
This is according to GPHC Chief Executive Officer Michael Khan, who said that while the report has been finished, the next step is to meet with the mother of Mars, Natalie Caseley, to discuss the findings.
When contacted, Caseley, said that she doesn’t know when she is going to meet with hospital officials. The boy died last Tuesday after being a patient of the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU). According to his mother, he was admitted to the hospital after he had tripped and bit his tongue while playing at home.
During his admission, Jaden suffered multiple heart issues, his mother said. While speaking with Stabroek News, Caseley stated that though she was not yet ready to disclose the findings of the autopsy, it must be known that her son had been a healthy boy before he had entered the hospital. A vigil was also held outside of the hospital last Friday. The boy was buried yesterday.
