HASSAN REQUESTS AN INVESTIGATION INTO THREE CONCURRENT DEATHS AT ‘OUR LADY OF ZGHARTA’ HOSPITAL

NNA – Caretaker Minister of Public Health, Hamad Hassan, gave his instructions to the health department head in the North region, in addition to the judicial doctor and the monitoring doctor at “Our Lady of Zgharta” Hospital, as well as the inspecting physician, to visit the hospital this morning to verify the possible causes of the three deaths that coincided on the same day.

 

The initial report revealed that “no electrical malfunction had occurred and that oxygen was available in sufficient quantity in the main tanks in the hospital, whereby there was only shortage of oxygen pumping for a short period during which the backup actuator was used.”

 

The report emphasized that “the three patients were suffering from critical health conditions and had been in intensive care for more than two weeks,” adding that “confirmation of their death’s connection with the lack of oxygen pumping or due to other medical reasons requires additional probing that will be completed in the near future to settle the matter, ensuring that truth is revealed to the families of the deceased and to public opinion.”
