Any decision to establish a committee to look into the death of hospital patient Sherise Williams will be guided by the CMO and Director of Women’s Health.
This is according to Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh, who today addressed the fatality which followed what the hospital has deemed “a successful Caesarean Section” on November 30th 2020.
The family has been quoted as calling for independent investigations.
However, speaking in Parliament today, Mr Deyalsingh says an autopsy has already been done and policy will be followed.
Mr Deyalsingh says improvements have been made in maternal mortality but notes it is still a tragedy when these patients die.
