Weekes’s death brings to two the number of young women here who have died recently while receiving medical attention.

Lavel Janita George, an employee at Bank of St. Vincent and the Grenadines died in Barbados late July, where she was transferred after being rushed to the MCMH from Maryfield Hospital, a private facility.

    it’s not shocking if you don’t have professionals and no upgrade to training on a regular basis.

  3. o_0 I don’t understand what’s going on in St. Vincent lately. People are been killed in the hospital and its as if the Government doesn’t care as to what is happening to his people. The people of St. Vinect and the Grenadines needs to take action. One death is too much, its not even death its murder.Something needs to be done. Why are we sitting down with our arms fold, not doing anything while our young vibrant men and women are dying at the hands of those criminals?These so call Nurses and Doctors like they came on a mission to kill innocent people.I had a death 2yrs ago, my sister went to hospital, had a healthy baby boy, they knew sthe would be breast feeding yet they put her on anti-biotics unaware that the anti-biotics was harmful to the baby she took the medication now the poor child died in the space of 2weeks exactly his age :'( and nothing was done they said they did autospy but yet they fail to tell her how and what killed the baby. My sister decided they would bury the baby themselves. They were given a sealed cuffon…OMG these people are wicked bastards. The Government is doing nothing so they will continue, maybe thats what they were brought to the country to do -_- My heart goes out to these young ladies families…My friend Donna Clarke who was a cleaner at Bank of ST. Vincent and the Grenadines told me she knew Mrs Lavel Janita George she told me she was such a sweet heart, a very nice lady& very kind was some of the description she give me of her. So my condolences to her family from Donna & myself…RIP!!!
