A Cuban mother took to social media to criticize the death of her newborn son in a hospital in Santiago de Cuba and the lack of clarity in the doctors’ response.
The young woman, identified as Yasmin Bell Aguilera, explained that her child was born alive by cesarean section at 5:00 p.m., although the date was not specified, and that at 8:40 p.m. he was informed that it had died.
Yasmin asked for answers about what might happen to her son at that time because she and her family were not shown the body.
“It is not fair for a mother whose child was alive until week 40, alive until she entered the operating room and was told that she could not breathe or she died,” said the desperate woman.
The young mother asked, “Why is there such a delay?”
According to Yasmin, who claimed to be the mother of two other children, her birth was dangerous, and she was admitted to the hospital for two months, leaving her other two children at her grandmother’s house. She also allocated his birthday and the end of the year as his admission to the health institution.
In April last year, another Cuban mother living in BayamoGranma province reported on social media the death of her baby in a hospital in Holguín, just two days after what she described as a “traumatic birth.”
The young woman, identified as Elianis Méndez, explained that her son, a boy, was born around three in the morning on Thursday, April 13, in a hospital that did not specify who it was and detailed the sad chain of events that ended. with his son’s death due to respiratory arrest.
Also, in May of the same year, a Cuban family reported the death of a newborn due to alleged medical negligence at the América Arias hospital, better known as Maternidad de Línea, in Havana.
Another case of a dead child occurred at the “Diez de Octubre” Gynecobstetric Hospital (Daughters of Galicia) in Havana, four days after her birth, and the probable cause is the bacteria she got in that health institution, the family reported.
In the same way, they reported possible medical negligence in that hospital due to the malpractice of the staff in charge of patient care.
