iciHaiti – Death : Denial of the Hospital of the State University of Haiti
The Directorate of the State University Hospital of Haiti (the General Hospital) denies the information circulated in some media, suggesting that the young man of 16 years, Maxon Pierre, wounded by a bullet during a demonstration last October 2, died at the General Hospital for lack of care.
The hospital Directorate shares the grief of the family with all the people affected by this death and takes the opportunity to deny this false information and to shed light on how the case of Maxon Pierre was managed in all respects, the law of this young man to receive care.
We recall that Maxon Pierre, who was wounded by a bullet, had already lost a lot of blood before he arrived at the hospital on October 2, 2019 at 9:10 pm and was under police surveillance, but that this did not prevent all the steps already taken to ensure that the hospital gets blood for him, to operate quickly and remove the ball. But despite the operation and all the other care that his condition required, the young man died on October 7, 2019 at 8:15 pm. The board of the hospital has all the evidence to prove that Maxon Pierre was taken care as it should, contrary to what some people would like to believe.
The Directorate reminds everyone that the General Hospital is a public service institution that provides care to all, regardless of political or other considerations.
