Decaying fetus found under a bed inside the K.H.M.H.

There have been all sorts of scandalous allegations of wrongdoings made against the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, but tonight there is a troubling report that has been confirmed by the police. The K.H.M.H. is not providing further details, but on Friday night, sometime around eight o’clock, a patient from Orange Walk alerted the nurses on duty that there was a foul odour emanating from under the bed she was occupying inside the observation ward which is not in the same wing as the Paediatric Ward. When it was checked, hospital personnel happened upon a decaying fetus tucked away inside a small white box. Our information is that despite the gruesome discovery, Belize City police were not notified of the find until several hours later.  When Scenes of Crime Personnel arrived at the hospital, they reportedly had difficulties conducting an investigation since the staff on duty at the time of the discovery had already completed the evening shift. Of note is that a male police officer, who was at the Accident and Emergency section of the hospital at the time the fetus was found, purportedly questioned the length of time the decomposing unborn remained under the bed. Nurses, we are told, were quite dismissive of the opinion that it may have been discarded beneath the bed for at least three days before being found. It is not known when it was hidden under the bed or who the mother would be, but police are looking into this disturbing find. Even more disturbing are reports that personnel questioned after the discovery admitted to not cleaning underneath the bed when they were sanitizing the ward. But tonight, the most puzzling question is whether an abortion was performed or a miscarriage was suffered inside the ward.

    I say fire all the cleaning people and start over. This is why so many babies died in the hospital and why so many mysterious deaths occurs, dirt, bacteria and lack of sanitization.

    The people who work in these places where peoples life depends on them is interested in one thing only getting a paycheck.

    What is the government doing, this country is going to hell in a hand basket and no one cares. I pray that God raise up one person who cares about this country to change it.

    This is what has become of all the PAHO and other international funding that Belize has received for its health system! What an international SHAME!! Thanks for the funding to a rotten government!

    There is absolutely no excuse that can explain this occurrence. This is disgusting and whoever has been involved with that room and ward, from the top to the bottom…especially those who were on duty at the time of the discovery, must be thoroughly interviewed.

    Once culpability is established the most severest of penalty must be administered. This is unbelievable!

    This is very disturbing news. Why are people not paying close attention to what is happening around them?
    In a hospital, considering that the lives of many are dependent, should at all times be kept sanitized and clean. What about those people that are cleaning ? they should seriously be supervised. The government needs to get its act together or else god knows where this country and its people will end.

    This is sickening! What the hell is going on with this hospital? And the inept GOB/Ministry of Health that allows this to happen? They don’t even clean the filthy place.

    The sad thing is that this news travels far and wide. No competent medical doctor would touch Belize with a ten foot pole let alone practice here.
