Mum's concern

Torika Chandra
Saturday, August 16, 2014

MY baby is still not well, he is only getting worse. These were the desperate words of a concerned mother, Fareena Nisha from Koronivia in Nausori.

Ms Nisha's story was highlighted in April this year.

She claimed that she delivered her son Mohammed Uzaer Ali on April 13 while being forced to walk from the observation room in the maternity ward to the delivery room, allegedly resulting in the newborn falling on the floor and suffering injuries.

She said she had filed a report with the Ministry of Health and met the minister Doctor Neil Sharma.

However, while the Ministry of Health confirms the meeting and the case being filed, they said investigations into the alleged complaint had been completed.

"I have not heard from them at all," Ms Nisha said.

"No one from the Ministry of Health has called or visited me to tell me about the results of the investigation."

A statement from MoH said the case had been resolved as both mother and baby were well.

"The ministry is pleased to report that the mother and baby are both well.

"The Health Ministry respects confidentiality of its clients and as such details of complaints/cases cannot be released to the public."
