Mother blames NA Hospital for baby’s death

first_imgA young mother is accusing some doctors and nurses at the New Amsterdam Hospital’s Maternity Ward of negligence, which resulted in her delivering a stillborn baby early Tuesday morning.The 19-year-old first-time mother, Bibi Asiyaa Hussain, is demanding answers from the Hospital’s authorities since she would have entered their care with a healthy foetus. According to the grieving woman, she left her Crabwood Creek, Corentyne home on July 1 after experiencing severe pains and was admitted to the New Amsterdam Hospital.She said had the doctors and nurses paid much more attention to her complaints then perhaps her baby girl would have still been alive. The visibly distraught woman explained that she cried and begged the nurses to help her, since the pain was unbearable but all she got was “you nah ready yet…yuh time nah reach yet.”However, when her time did come, the baby was already dead. Recounting the events, Hussain said from the time she was admitted all she had been hearing was that she was not ready to deliver despite her continuous complaints of heavy pains and steady contractions. This persisted until Monday and a nurse who told her to wait her turn checked her.Around 21:00h Monday night, the nurses began monitoring the foetus and it was indicated that a steady and healthy heartbeat was present. At that point, Hussain was 3cm dilated. On Tuesday morning about 01:00h, a doctor came to check on her and told her she was 4cm dilated, but Hussain said she felt as though it was time and would have indicated that to the doctor and asked to use the washroom.Nevertheless, the doctor said that the baby was in a position to be delivered and she could not use the washroom. Hussain would then be forced to lie there and wait until 04:00h when the doctor returned and began panicking after the foetal heartbeat was no longer there.“She check me and then say they not hearing a heartbeat from the baby, I say ‘what you mean because when you check earlier the baby was okay?’,” she related.An emergency ultrasound was done at 05:30h and it was confirmed that the foetus died.“The doctor advised to put me on drips to bring down the baby and that was to ?start at 06:00h. After about 30 minutes into the drips, another female doctor came to check me and after she realised I was on the drips she said that wrong because it would take too long, because the baby dead and in me, if they wait longer it could kill me too,” she tearfully related.??She eventually delivered the dead baby girl. Now her grief has changed into anger and she is demanding answers from the authorities since she believes the doctor and nurses were negligent. However, the Hospital has been mum on the incident and efforts to contact the Director of Health Services proved futile.Additionally, the woman sought to get a meeting with the doctor, but that request was denied.last_img read more

UG Trojans into semis vs DCC

first_imgFollowing their defeat to DCC in the first division by the remarkable heroics of Guyana’s very own Christopher Barnwell, the University of Guyana Trojans will have to face their old foes in the NBS 2nd Division 40-over semifinal at DCC, starting at 10:30am.UG Trojans Captain, Melroy StephensonSpeaking to Guyana Times Sport, Captain of the Trojans, Melroy Stephenson, said, “Well, on the 2nd division tournament, we fancy our chances. Thus far in the competition, we have invested, winning all 7 of our matches to date. We anticipate a keenly contested match against DCC, but on this occasion we expect to come out on top in the first division semifinal. It took a Herculean effort by senior West Indian player Chris Barnwell to overcome us, but with Barnwell not playing 2nd division, we don’t foresee a repeat by the Queenstown-based side. As a result, we should be progressing to the finals, and wait whoever wins between Police and GCC. We are quite confident, but not complacent”.Asked who the DCC should be watchful of, Stephenson said, “In the tournament thus far, Omesh Danram has been sensational as he has scored the only hundred thus far, representing the students. A few other batters who a lot can be expected of are Linden Austin, Ershad Ali, Dwayne Dodson and myself, with my highest score being 57. In the bowling department a lot will be expected from our bowlers Ershad Ali, Dennis Heywood and Ray Newton, since both Newton and Heywood are our leading bowlers, with Ali having a 5-wicket haul to his name thus far”.With the UG Trojans currently having to prepare for a T/20 tournament in Suriname before they return to play the NBS 2nd Division 40-Over semifinal, there is bound to be tons of experience gained, and confidence to return and face DCC.last_img read more

Tulsa storms past Fresno St.

first_img “Until Nov. 19, it went very well,” Fresno State coach Pat Hill said. “At the end, it didn’t go very well.” TCU 27, Iowa State 24: Peter LoCoCo kicked a 44-yard field goal with less than 6 minutes remaining to give the No. 14 Horned Toads the victory in the Houston Bowl. The win extended TCU’s winning streak to 10 games, the third-longest in the nation behind No. 1 USC (34) and No. 2 Texas (19). LoCoCo’s field goal was TCU’s only score in the second half after the Horned Frogs built a 24-17 halftime lead. Mountain West champion TCU was out to prove itself after being snubbed by the BCS. The Horned Frogs had the best record among teams from non-BCS conferences. N.C. State 14, South Florida 0: Using stout defense and just enough offense to get the job done, the Wolfpack capped its late-season rally with a victory in the Meineke Car Care Bowl at Charlotte, N.C. Brian Clark caught a 9-yard touchdown pass and Andre Brown scored on a 1-yard run to lead the Wolfpack (7-5), which rallied from a 2-4 start to the season to close the year with three consecutive wins. It was a disappointing end for upstart South Florida, which was playing in its first bowl in school history. The Bulls (6-6) launched their program nine years ago, moved up to Division I-A in 2001 and capped their first season in the Big East with a bowl bid. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Tulsa made a remarkable comeback this season. Fittingly, the Golden Hurricane used a timely rally to win their biggest game of the year. Paul Smith ran 4 yards for the winning touchdown with 2:55 to play, and Tulsa had two key interceptions in its 31-24 victory over Fresno State on Saturday in the Liberty Bowl at Memphis, Tenn. “Today was really a microcosm of our season,” Tulsa coach Steve Kragthorpe said. Smith, the game’s MVP, was 18 of 27 for 234 yards with a 54-yard touchdown pass to Ashlan Davis. But he made his biggest play on the ground, scrambling around three defenders and into the end zone to secure Tulsa’s first bowl victory in 14 years. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson “I just decided I didn’t want to force (a pass) in there,” Smith said. “I’ve done that a lot when I was younger, and it always goes 99 yards the other way. So I just wanted to tuck it down and try to make a play.” The Golden Hurricane forced a pair of turnovers from the Bulldogs’ Paul Pinegar in clinching their seventh win in eight games to close the season. The Golden Hurricane (9-4) overcame low expectations this season to claim an unlikely Conference USA championship in its first year in the league, then beat a Fresno State team that gave top-ranked USC fits and once was ranked 16th before a late-season slump. Pinegar, who was denied in his attempt to become the first quarterback to go 4-0 as a starter in bowl games, finished 19 of 30 for 213 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Wendell Mathis had 117 yards rushing for Fresno State (8-5), which closed a once-promising year with four straight losses after beating Boise State on Nov. 10. The closer-than-expected loss to the top-ranked Trojans came nine days later. last_img read more

eleven-x marches its low-power IoT network across Canada

first_imgHow IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … Canada is getting a new nationwide wireless network, and this one is specially suited for the Internet of Things (IoT). eleven-x, a member of the LoRa Alliance, is rolling out a cross-Canada expansion of its Low Power Wide Area Network [LPWAN] to include densely populated areas across Canada.Cities that will be covered by the expanded network include: Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, and Toronto. In fact, the Greater Toronto area cities, including Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville and Burlington are also set to be covered in order to make way for the Smart City programs in the region.What it means to Canada’s IoT infrastructureReliable connectivity is essential to for IoT devices that governments, corporations, and individuals depend on. Where many consumer-grade IoT devices exist just fine in the home on the owner’s Wi-Fi signal, having a constant connection outside of the home, or indeed throughout a region, is another story.Existing wireless carrier signals make a lot of bandwidth available, but also require a lot of energy to maintain a connection to. IoT devices don’t need a lot of bandwidth. They just need enough to send data and receive commands.eleven-x‘s LPWAN offers a low-powered solution that, while having far less bandwidth than a conventional carrier signal, can be constantly connected to by battery-powered sensors with minimal energy overhead.This makes it a compelling choice for IoT developers working on smart city projects where sensors are spread throughout a city, many of them operating on battery power. LPWAN makes it possible for these IoT devices to extend their battery life as much as 20 years over those operating on conventional carrier signals.Expanding on existing footprintThis won’t be eleven-x’s first presence in Canada. The company’s LPWAN network currently exists in 22 markets representing over 60% of the country’s population. Initial deployments were launched in December 2016, with a central focus on the Southern Ontario region.This expansion makes way for more smart city programs and less-expensive carrier-grade connectivity throughout the coverage area. eleven-x’s network is already being used to host several Smart City initiatives and enterprise IoT pilot programs. These include projects like smart parking, water monitoring, health and assisted living, and smart metering for utilities like electricity.Canada’s first smart metering program for water was a combined effort between the region of Waterloo and eleven-x.“The timing of this expansion couldn’t be better, enabling the rapidly growing Canadian IoT market.” said Nigel Wallis, Vice President of IoT and Industry Research at IDC.The LoRa Alliance is a global organization that is bringing forward what it hopes will be a consistent, open standard for secure, carrier-grade low-power IoT connectivity. It is comprised of 400 companies globally.Along with this project to expand its LPWAN network, eleven-x has upgraded its membership with the LoRa Alliance to the Contributor level. This upgrade gives eleven-x the ability to initiate, chair, and vote in work groups. These work groups enable members to come up with new draft specifications and other ways to take the technology further.This upgraded role allows eleven-x to take a more active role in the open standard the LoRa Alliance is creating.

Barauli MLA’s grandson alleges ragging at AMU

first_imgIn an alleged case of ragging, Vijay Kumar Singh, grandson of Barauli MLA Dalveer Singh, has complained of being verbally assaulted by seniors during introduction at Aligarh Muslim University. A student of Spanish in the Department of Foreign Languages, Mr. Vijay said on Wednesday when he went to attend the classes for the first time, a group of seniors asked him his name and forced him to stand up and move in and out of the class. When he refused, he was abused. He said a proctorial team reached the spot and addressed the matter. “However, when I went to attend another class in the afternoon, I was again stopped and a group of senior students misbehaved with me. It led to a heated argument,” said Mr. Vijay. He has given a written complaint to the proctor.He is the younger brother of Ajay Singh who contested the Students’ Union elections last year and was later suspended for indiscipline. University spokesperson Shafey Kidwai said, “The university administration has taken note of the charges and the complaint against 4-5 students has been forwarded to the anti-ragging committee of the department. Strict action will be taken against those found guilty.”last_img read more
