Amidst Broken Health System Non-Ebola Deaths Due to ‘Negligence’

first_imgThe mother of a deceased man has blamed the death of her son on the alleged negligence of Liberia’s health sector.Daphne Barnes-Kamara, mother of Abdu Kamara, walked into the offices of the Daily Observer on last Friday and told this newspaper that she took her son to some clinics and hospitals in and out of Monrovia following an accident in July, but he was treated with total negligence.Mrs. Barnes-Kamara, who described the health sector in Liberia as “poor,” indicated that medical personnel she came across might have thought her deceased son had Ebola, something she emphatically refuted.Narrating her ordeal, Madam Kamara, daughter of the renowned Liberian Ambassador to the United Nations in the early 1960s, Nathan Barnes, said she returned to Liberia in July upon hearing that her son had an accident and his tail bone had been affected.“When I came, I took him to the ELWA Hospital for an x-ray and later to the Chinese clinic for acupuncture. His blood and urine tests were done and the white blood was described to be good but he was diagnosed with one plus malaria in the red blood.  He was given medication for that.  After some time of stay at the Chinese clinic for acupuncture, he told me that he was experiencing excruciating pain and wanted to discontinue the treatment,” Mrs. Barnes-Kamara said.According to her, after leaving the Chinese clinic there was a need to find a hospital where MRI (Magnetic Resonance I) and Orthopedic surgery could be performed, and she and her son went to the Du Side Hospital in Firestone, Margibi County.“I was trying to find a hospital where they could do MRI, as well as Orthopedic surgery.    The Jackson F. Doe Memorial Hospital was recommended to me, but we later realized that it did not have an MRI machine.  I took my son to the Du Side Hospital in Firestone, and when we got there, I asked for a wheel chair to put my son in, but the staff at the hospital said he must walk to the emergency entrance where the chair was.  My driver and I had to lift him up before placing him in the wheel chair.  There was no help from the staff and they refused to bring the wheel chair,” she narrated.She also said that they recommended her son for an x-ray, but the Radiologist who did the x-ray could not explain the result because it had not been properly done.“Can you imagine the Radiologist could not interpret the result of the x-ray?  Where the x-ray was performed was not comfortable, and therefore the result could not come out good.  The Radiologist only said he believed the result was not a bad one,” she said.She further stated that her son was taken to the emergency room where his blood pressure was tested.  She informed the medical examiner that her son was weak and needed help to lay him down, but the medical staff there refused to touch him, making her to perceive that they (staff) felt he had Ebola.Mrs. Barnes-Kamara also indicated that when she met the doctor assigned at the Duside Hospital and narrated her son’s condition.  But they were turned down by the doctor on grounds that he (doctor) was going to meet the President on the Ebola crisis.“The doctor told me that he could do nothing about my son until September 15 and we were talking in August.  I told him my son did not have Ebola but was dehydrated and needed intravenous fluid, and the doctor told me to take him home and feed him with nourishing foods to recover,” she stressed.According to her, she also called the Poly Clinic and forwarded her son’s case, but the doctor she spoke to told her to find a psychiatrist, since the son used to walk and no longer does.“I also called SOS Clinic to help save my son’s life, but they, too, turned me down.  It was one doctor I contacted at the Kingdom Care Clinic and she promised to help my son.  But while preparing on that Saturday to take him there, he gave up the ghost,” said Mrs. Kamara.Madam Barnes-Kamara said though Ebola is raging and claiming many lives and she empathizes with affected people.  It is, she said, also dangerous for the entire health system to be broken down.  For this, she blames the government and calls for its immediate overhaul to save lives.“The health system in this country now is very poor, and what happened that led to the death of my son is negligence on the part of medical practitioners who took the Hippocratic Oath to save lives,” she noted.Mrs. Barnes-Kamara who is by profession herself a Registered Nurse (RN), refuted medical reports that her deceased son  had weight loss for 3 months and his lungs, cardiovascular and abdominal examination were unremarkable, noting that such examinations were  not done by Duside Hospital.Since the Ebola outbreak most hospitals in Liberia became dysfunctional, and because of the deaths of many health workers as a result of contracting the Ebola disease while giving care.  Many of them (health workers) hardly want to touch a patient when he/she is taken to the hospital, for fear of contracting the disease.Every patient taken to the hospital now is considered an Ebola patient until proven otherwise, she lamented.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Emery set to succeed Wenger as Arsenal boss

first_img0Shares0000New Gunner? Unai Emery looks set to succeed Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager © AFP / CHARLY TRIBALLEAULONDON, United Kingdom, May 21 – Former Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery looks set to become Arsene Wenger’s successor after 22 years as Arsenal manager, the BBC reported on Monday.Emery, 46, won Ligue 1 and four domestic cups in two seasons in the French capital before departing earlier this month. However, the Spaniard paid for his failure to get PSG beyond the last 16 of the Champions League in his two seasons at the Parc des Princes.“Emery emerged as the unanimous choice following a recruitment process in which all candidates were spoken to,” said the BBC.PSG had previously reached four consecutive Champions League quarter-finals following the Qatari takeover of the club in 2011, but Emery oversaw a humiliating defeat to Barcelona in the last 16 a year ago, losing 6-1 at the Camp Nou after a 4-0 win in the first leg.The club then committed to spending 400 million euros ($483 million) on Neymar and Kylian Mbappe alone — the two most expensive transfer deals in history — last year, but Paris were eliminated in the last 16 again this year, going out to Real Madrid.“We lost against Real but they are showing that they are maybe still the strongest team in Europe,” said Emery when announcing his departure.Emery previously enjoyed great success on the European stage at Sevilla, where he won three Europa League titles in three full seasons at the Sanchez Pizjuan.Arsenal have been looking for a new boss for the first time in over two decades since Wenger announced last month he was stepping down at the end of the season.A sixth-placed finish in the Premier League, the Frenchman’s worst-ever return, means the Gunners have failed to qualify for the Champions League for a second straight season.Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta, who has formed part of Pep Guardiola’s coaching staff at Premier League champions Manchester City for the past two seasons, appeared to be the front runner in the past week.Arteta, who played 150 games for Arsenal between 2011 and 2016, even had Wenger’s blessing.“He was a leader, has good passion for the game, knows the club and knows what is important at the club,” Wenger told BeIn Sports.However, Arteta’s lack of previous managerial experience appears to have seen him lose out to his compatriot.Emery’s own playing career was a modest one, largely in Spain’s lower divisions after failing to make the grade at Real Sociedad.However, he established a reputation as a bright young coach at Lorca and Almeria before being handed his first big job at Valencia in 2008.Despite severe financial problems as players like David Villa, David Silva and Juan Mata were sold, Emery led Valencia to third place behind Barcelona and Real Madrid for three consecutive seasons.A short, ill-fated spell at Spartak Moscow followed before he returned to his homeland at Sevilla in 2013.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DONE DEAL! Chelsea sign Exeter City’s record-breaking teenager Ethan Ampadu

first_imgChelsea have won the race for highly-rated Exeter teenager Ethan Ampadu.The 16-year-old, who trained with the senior Wales squad ahead of Euro 2016, has signed a deal with the Premier League champions after deciding to leave Exeter, the Sky Bet League Two club have announced.Exeter will not receive a transfer fee as Ampadu had yet to sign scholarship forms at St James Park but the Grecians are entitled to compensation for their academy product.Exeter said in a statement they hope a fee can be agreed with Chelsea for the Wales Under-19 defender without the need to go to a tribunal.Ampadu became Exeter’s youngest debutant – beating Cliff Bastin’s long-standing record – after being given his bow in last season’s League Cup match against Brentford aged 15 years, 10 months and 26 days, and he went on to make 13 appearances for the first team.Exeter manager Paul Tisdale said on his club’s website: “Everyone at Exeter City fully supports Ethan’s decision to sign for Chelsea.“He had many options available to him and has decided that Chelsea provides him with the best opportunity to develop the next step of his career. We wish him the very best of luck.” Ethan Ampadu has left Exeter City for Chelsea 1last_img read more
