The Ministry of Health has been advised by the Attorney General’s office to settle quietly, a claim by a Micoud Woman who accused staff at the Victoria Hospital of neglect last month

The health institution came under the spotlight following allegations that nurses neglected to care for 19 year old Chelsea Matty who was pregnant at the time while she gave birth to a premature baby.

According to reports, nurses at the hospital did not come to help the woman despite her cries for help. The baby later died.

Executive Director at VH who indicated that an investigation would have been conducted into the matter later revealed that the findings had been forwarded to the Ministry of Health and that authorization to release the findings would have to come from the Permanent Secretary in that department.

RCI news has learnt that while the report has found that the hospital was not at fault in the matter, the Ministry of health has been advised by the Attorney general’s Office to settle quietly with the family.

Efforts to reach the Permanent Secretary as well as the Minister for Health for confirmation on the matter have proved futile.
