first_imgPhoto credit: salem-news.comThe parents of a 15 year old girl from Marigot who died on Friday want authorities to investigate the circumstances surrounding her death.Le-Ann Andrew died at the Marigot hospital after complaining about stomach pains.Her mother Brenda Andrew says there appeared to be a level of neglect on the part of the nurses there.She said she brought her daughter at the Hospital and was not given the appropriate attention until she passed out.“When I arrived at the hospital she told me she was feeling weak and sick. She told me she wanted some water. When I gave her the water, she vomited. The nurse gave her an injection and then she fell down after a while. I started to scream then the nurse gave her three tablets. Then they put her to lie down on the bed. That is where my child stayed for hours. One of the nurses told the other one watch her eyes…she never responded. I kept asking them why she wasn’t being placed on drips and why they weren’t calling the doctor. She said the doctor was in Roseau. The drips were never given to her. My child died of neglect,” she said.Brenda says when she returned to the hospital at around 4pm, her daughter was already dead.Meantime her father Crusoe Andrew says while his daughter has a trace of sickle cells, he believes that her death was mysterious.“Lean wasn’t feeling well. She had a little cold and vomiting and when I dropped her to the hospital. I had to work so I couldn’t stay with her. A few hours later, my wife calls and says Lean is low. I asked them what they mean by low. I asked them if she was so sick why she wasn’t taken to the PMH. When I saw my child, she was weak and hardly breathing. It’s like they didn’t even check my child the way she was supposed to be checked,” he said.Dominica Vibes News Tweet LocalNews Marigot parents want answers by: – February 1, 2012 Share 21 Views   3 commentscenter_img Sharing is caring!
