– A public hospital was lambasted by a netizen after it allegedly refused to give the baby proper medical needs
– The mother already died and the baby needs better medical attention, which allegedly he wasn’t able to receive due to lack of money
– She also pointed out that the baby, being a preemie, needed to be in an incubator but they allegedly didn’t put him there
A netizen shared the story of her friend who passed away at Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Hospital and that of her premature baby.
KAMI learned that her friend went to the hospital for a prenatal checkup but was told that she was suffering from a high blood pressure, which allegedly necessitated that her baby be delivered immediately.
Having heard such statements, the mother stayed at the hospital, but three days after she ɖıεɖ.
The baby was delivered prematurely and she needed to stay at the ICU.
According to Jovie Lapaz Barretto, the one who posted the incident on Facebook, the family decided that perhaps the baby could be transferred so that her chances of survival would be higher.
Transferring the baby has become difficult. She should be in the incubator, but according Jovie, the hospital wasn’t doing what must be done.
They wouldn’t give “swero” if there’s no payment. They also stated that the hospital wouldn’t allow SWA or PHILHEALTH to shoulder the cost of transferring the baby.
The netizen is now asking for any help that could be given to the baby and to the mom who died. Here’s the full post of Jovie:
Hindi ko po alam kung pano sisimulan, napakabilis po kasi ng mga pangyayari.
Nagpunta sila for prenatal check-up, Ok pa po sya nung nagpunta dun. pero sabi need nya iconfine dahil highblood daw po sya. going to 8mos na po ang pinagbubuntis nya. need na daw nya mailabas si baby ASAP kaya no choice po sila at di na umuwi. Nag-stay na sya sa DR JOSE N. RODRIGUEZ (TALA HOSPITAL)
Almost 3days lang po, isang buhay na naman ang nasayang. Nasa critical na condition na po pero nagtatawanan at nagtuturuan pa ang staff doon. (edit add) Nung iaakyat na sa ICU walang nag-assist at sinita pa sila ng guard dahil mali ang nadaanan nila sa kakamadali. sa ngayon po ay naiwan ang kanyang premature BABY doon at kailangan talaga ng maayos na pagbabantay pero parang nagpapabaya na naman ang hospital.
Nagdecide po na baka pwede po mailipat si baby sa ibang hospital para makasurvive sya. Kumakatok po kame sa inyo, need po nila ng kahit anong tulong. Pahirapan pa po ang pag transfer. Dapat po talaga nasa incubator pa si baby pero hindi po nila ginagawa ang dapat. ayaw bigyan ng swero pag walang bayad ganyan ba talaga kayo TALA ( JOSE N. RODRIGUEZ HOSPITAL) mga walang hiya!! Ilang buhay pa ba babalewalain nyo? Tapos di pwede ipasagot sa SWA OR PHILHEALTH pag inilipat si BABY. Please share po malaking tulong na po para sa kanila. (Bestfriend po ng kapatid ko yung asawa ni Donalyn Suarez Loterte)
EDITED: Para kay Donalyn at lalo na kay BABY ERIN
Ang post po na ito ay para matulungan sila kahit sa simpleng paraan. Kumakatok po kame sa inyong mabubuting puso, kahit maliit na halaga lang po ay malaking pasasalamat at utang na loob po namen habang buhay. Sa mga nais pong tumulong imessage nyo lang po yung fb ni Dona, gamit po iyun ni Luigi (husband). Maraming salamat po sa mga nagshare at magshare pa. Godbless po! #SaveBabyErin
