A 35-year-old midwife, Priscilla Baah, has died from postpartum haemorrhage after she gave birth at Newland Hospital, a private health facility in Koforidua in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
It is alleged that the sad incident occurred due to negligence on the part of the health officers on duty at the private facility, but insider information obtained by YEN.com.gh has revealed that was not the case.
YEN.com.gh has gathered that every required protocol was followed meticulously at the private hospital that has become a desired place for many expectant mothers due to its professional service.
It is indicated that the midwife who worked at St. Joseph Hospital gave up the ghost on Friday, May 28, 2021, after she was transferred from the Newland Hospital to the regional hospital.
The haemorrhage was reportedly noticed and managed before the situation, unfortunately, got out of hand after the woman was referred.
Some health professionals have said that the midwife life could have been saved if the ambulance supposed to transport her to the regional hospital had arrived much earlier.
The early arrival of the ambulance would have accorded the Regional Hospital more time to handle the situation.
The late midwife was married and has left behind three children including the newborn.
The case is currently pending audit.
