The Victoria Hospital has come under the spotlight again following alleged claims that nurses neglected a pregnant woman, who later gave birth to a premature baby.
According to reports, nurses at the hospital did not come to help the woman when she was crying for help.
The baby later died.
The hospital has launched an investigation into claims of gross neglect by the 19- year-old woman, but said that the nurses did not cause the death of the baby.
Reports are that Chelsea Matty, who resides in Micoud, was only seven months pregnant, when she was admitted to the hospital.
Matty was transferred from St Jude Hospital to Victoria Hospital on September 25, 2015, as a result of developing complications and put into the Labor Room all by herself.
The woman told the media that she kept asking for help, after she had thrown up several times, but no one came to her assistance.
At one time, she even wet her bed, because she was not given a bed pan nor taken to the washroom when she requested to go.
After delivering a baby girl on her own at 1:50 a.m. on of September 26, a nurse came and cut the umbilical cord and took the child away and she was left to clean herself.
The baby died right hours after, because her lungs were premature, according to the mother.
