Re: Premature Baby Born At Dawson Jail Without Medically Trained Personnel
That is such a very tragic and sad turn of events. I could see why no Doctor was present at the facility at that time, but to say no medical staff were in attendance?? She was taken down to medical on a stretcher, where at the very least they would of had a nurse in attendance you would think but said this one was head of the unit, so i would think she would be an RN?? How can you be head of a unit if not an RN?? Anyway, the Dr was on a teleconference call but for what ever reason the attending "unit manager" was told he was not required, so while he knew about her condition did not go in to see her personally.
What i do not understand is why no bloods nor urine test were done on ADMISSION into the facility? I thought that was the norm? Why was the REQUESTED pregnancy test not available and as for the attending CO's i can only wonder if any of them had had kids before? Then again i was given two pain killers and told to go home when i fronted at the hospital believing i was in labour. I made a stand and refused to leave knowing the signs. Needless to say i was nursing my daughter within the hour. I'm just so sorry no one listened to this young lady, because more than likely her baby "Gracie" would be alive today if given proper treatment and care of not only mother but child.
I tell you what, i would be making sure a few people were held accountable.
Never grow a wishbone, daughter,
