Medical, Nursing Councils shoot down recommendation in Jaden Mars’ death
The Guyana Medical Council and the General Nursing Council have both said they will not be upholding the disciplinary measures recommended by Chief Medical Officer – Shamdeo Persaud into the death of four year old Jaden Mars.
Jaden Mars died in the operating theatre of the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was taken for a cut to this tongue in January.
Representatives of both agencies, contacted by this newscast, said they have received the report into the child’s death, but said they cannot just accept Persaud’s recommendations without conducting their own investigations.
None of the two persons contacted could say when those investigations will be conducted.
Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of the Georgetown Public Corporation – Michael Khan said since the file on Mars death was forwarded to the Ministry he has not heard anything else on the matter.
He also said such investigations are conducted by the Ministry of Health with guidance coming from the Chief Medical Officer on what the decisions are.
Yesterday, Jaden Mars’ mother Natalie Caseley in an interview with Capitol News said she is yet to get word on whether disciplinary actions recommended by the Chief Medical Officer were implemented.
The Chief Medical Officer had recommended disciplinary charges for a nurse, junior anesthesiologist and two doctors.
