[www.inewsguyana.com] – “We have a culture of looking for people’s head and we have to change it,” said the Chief Executive Officer of the Georgetown Public Hospital, Michael Khan as he informed reporters on Friday (January 17) of the status of investigations into the death of 4 – year – old Jaden Mars.
Khan said all investigations are complete and no one at the institution has been blamed for the boy’s death.
According to the Hospital CEO, he is now coming out of discussions with the lad’s mother and he is in the process of approaching the Board of Directors, with the report on the investigation for guidance. He urged that natural justice be allowed to take its course.
Mars died from a blockage of the main artery of the lung or one of its branches by a substance that has traveled from elsewhere in the body through the bloodstream (Pulmonary Embolism), according to a post mortem examination which was conducted on December 11, 2013.
Mars died at the GPHC on December 10, after spending six days at the institution on life support. His mother Natalie Caseley had speculated that her son might have been overdosed or the right procedures may not have been followed. He was taken to the institution on December 4 for stitches, after biting his tongue during a fall. The incident had led Officials at the GPHC to launch a probe into the circumstances surround Mars’ death.
