ACTION TAKEN: In response to the botched caesarean section, New Years Maternal death of Rose Gordon, THREE doctors have been suspended from duty yesterday.
After several hours of deliberation, the Tobago Regional Health Authority (TRHA) Board decided to suspend the three-member medical team involved in the C-section surgery and subsequent death of Rose Gordon, 35, of Charlotteville, Tobago.
The suspension comes on the heels of the Chief Secretary's assurance that no stone would be left unturned.
Gordon, former principal of the Charlotteville Nursery School, died on New Year's Day at the hospital following a second surgery to stop uncontrolled bleeding which started after the C-section via which she gave birth to a baby girl.
An investigation has been launched into the death.
