KHMH says newborn died of heart failure

The Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital today issued a very brief release on the cause of death of baby Lorena Bol who was born last Friday and died two days later on Sunday. The premature baby died (Quote) “of a latent congenital abnormality of the heart which was incompatible with sustaining life.” (Unquote) Punta Gorda residents, Lawrence Bol and Elvira Ack, were excited about the birth of their first child. Ack gave birth to her baby girl eight months into the pregnancy. But the parents are still not satisfied with the results and believe that the hospital is not forthcoming.


Elvira Ack, Grieving Loss of Newborn

“This is the only thing they told my husband and that’s it. When my husband tried to ask questions, the doctors don’t want to hear it and they didn’t answer his questions.”


Duane Moody

“What is it that you believe is of course the problem and why they refuse to answer your husband’s questions?”


Elvira Ack

“Well I don’t know why they refused to answer my husband and my husband asked them why they didn’t know that from when my baby was born and they cannot answer him. They cannot answer him.”


Duane Moody

“Do you feel that there is something amiss; that they are hiding something?”


Elvira Ack

Elvira Ack

“I think so. They are hiding something from us. And worse, when we are asking them if it is for sure that my baby was okay when she was born.”


Duane Moody

“So what are you guys gonna do now? The post mortem is over; you head back to Punta Gorda?”


Elvira Ack

“My husband will be taking the baby on Friday. The nurses from P.G. called me and he is the one who answered the phone and he asked for assistance out there so that they can come and get the body out there. They agreed with it and they will be coming Friday and get the body out there. They will be taking out the body at one o’clock.”


And when the body reaches Punta Gorda, it will be immediately laid to rest.

    The attending physician could compassionately explain the pathophysiology of congenital heart disease in newborns to these grieving parents. The doctor could stop acting like an arrogant dork.
