Investigation Has Been Concluded

Adrian Coye

Coye reiterates that corrective measures to address what could have led to the event have been implemented, and they will meet with Lucia Martinez and her family as necessary to ensure that she and her baby are well, and to address her concerns. The investigation, which we are told was immediately initiated upon receiving the report, will play a major role in how those meetings play out. And of course, it will also factor heavily into the question of compensation for Lucia Martinez.


Dr. Adrian Coye, Chief Executive Officer, K.H.M.H.

“Whenever a question arises of this nature, immediately you are going to assess all the steps that should happen to even answer the question – is it possible that this could happen? – and in that way we would make changes or highlight certain aspects of care that we give. In terms of the investigation, I do have the final report, and in that way I would like the opportunity to discuss everything with the patient first.”



“Can you tell us at least if from what you’ve found out if the K.H.M.H. is responsible for what happened to Lucia Martinez?”


Dr. Adrian Coye

“Well I would say no, and I would ask the opportunity to speak to her first.”



“Sir…do you fear any lawsuit which may come out of this?”


Dr. Adrian Coye

“There is nothing about fear of lawsuit. It’s about what we do having an impact on our population. We are more concerned about how we are treating our patients than in fear of a lawsuit. If we are liable we are liable, and I will not defend things that are wrong. So my point is that we are addressing the matter, and I would want it to have a conclusion, but we will just have to do the right steps.”


News Five has tried to contact Lucia Martinez, but we were told that the family’s lawyer has advised them not to speak to the media at this point.
