Thread: Inquest into the death of Bimbo Onanuga

    A verdict of medical misadventure was as close to justice as one can get for the family in this case, given the fact that the Coroner had initially deemed it unnecessary to hold an inquest at all (based on the information given by the Rotunda) and it had taken over three years and relentless lobbying from various support groups to get this inquest. Is there anything the hospital was trying to hide? They were trying to push for a "narrative verdict" even at the end.

    Well done to everyone involved.

    Another inquest is being held into the maternal death of a Indian woman who was treated in Donegal (I think) and moved to Belfast.

    She was left for two days in a side ward after delivery, with serious effects of pre-eclampsia (life threatening condition) - her husband said when he asked if her worrying orange colour could be jaundice and was told be the doctor "how can I tell, she's Indian". Her husband says she was almost unrecognisable. She died and left her baby without a mother.

    I am finding it at this stage almost impossible to believe that there is no element of racism (maybe unconscious, but still racism) in these deaths.

    Another non-Irish woman died in childbirth after disastrous surgical intervention.

    She was having keyhole surgery for an ectopic/tubal pregnancy (in itself life-threatening). It was carried out by a second year registrar who accidentally punctured her abdominal aorta and although knew she was bleeding could not find the source. It took an hour and a half to get her a blood transfusion. It was an hour before the consultant gynaecologist came and another 15 minutes after that that the surgeon called to fix the tear was able to do it.
    She died about three hours after the bleeding started.
