Mr. George Geffie lost a daughter to childbirth at a local hospital. The young lady gave birth to a baby boy followed by bleeding. The bleeding was never stopped. She died one year later after more than one month of continuous hospitalization accompanied by frequent transfusion of several pints of blood.
Mr. Kennedy Gaysue died in a local hospital of alleged complications of asthma three years ago. He was taken to the hospital ER (emergency room) by his family. Given his symptoms at the time, his wife reported to the staff that he had history of asthma. Lacking basic equipment at the hospital, Kennedy’s family was asked to bring in his own nebulizer from home. He stayed a day in the hospital and died the following night.
