Because of the nature of the information we received we will call them allegations for now.
Details come out about twenty-three year old Jodian Fearon who died at Spanish Town hospital are more grim than already suspected. Earlier Spanish Town hospital was blamed for not providing treatment on time for the young mother but an insider says that the trouble began when Fearon registered as a patient at Andrews Memorial.
The insider says that Fearon was high risk from jump because of a pregnancy complication and Andrews Memorial does not have pregnancy ICU nor a neonatal ICU, island-wide there are are four hospitals that could have provided the care she needed. The correct procedure would have been for Fearon’s doctor to have referred her to one of Jamaica’s public hospitals and not charge her in the first place.
Allegations are that Fearon checked into Andrews Memorial for a scheduled C-Section and was said to be induced by her doctor, it is said that when Fearon’s blood-pressure began to sky rocket which was when he called the anesthesiologist at Andrews Memorial to perform the surgery. Allegedly the anesthesiologist saw that Fearon was in grave danger and refused to perform the surgery which was when her doctor called and ambulance to take her to another hospital who had the resources to treat her. Word is that UWI did not have adequate space for her and neither did Victoria Jubilee hospital. The doctor then proceeded to Spanish Town hospital alerting them that he was on his way.
While outside in the ambulance , the said doctor called officials inside Spanish Town and told them that he was on his way. Fearon’s breathing was already labored and the oxygen in her blood already low. With the COVID19 outbreak, authorities also suspected that she had the virus but her test came back negative for the illness.
After her doctor alerted Spanish Town Hospital that he was on his way when infact the ambulance was parked outside waiting with Fearon, doctors quickly put on PPE gear and set up the delivery room for Fearon and delivered her baby. Fearon later died from cardiac arrest.
