A Baby Dies In Jakarta – Hospitals and the ‘Hippocratical’ Oath

I have  posted on the ethical standards of hospitals before, on the original, pre-sabotage, RRA  – one (in)-famous example being the story of the poor people who couldn’t pay their bill after their baby was born, so the hospital held the infant as a hostage! – but today’s Jakarta Globe carries a tale that is so horrendous…

hippocratic oath

Well, read it for yourself, how a premature baby was turned away by NINE hospitals, some at least of them babbling about the money they expected if they were to save her life.

She’s dead.


Not unfamiliar with the stress parents can suffer whne a babe is prem, I’m just gettng madder as I re-read it. Please join me.
