HSE Builds Halappanavar Inquiry Team
A recent case surrounding the death of Savita Halappanavar has been getting the attention of one and all. The 31-year-old is reported to have died due to septicaemia at the hospital, after it was told that she had faced a miscarriage on 28 October.
Post the same, an inquiry has been set up which would examine all the factors which pushed her to death. A team comprising of seven members, chaired by Prof Sabaratnam Arulkumaran, head of obstetrics and gynaecology at St George's University of London, has assured that there would be proper investigation done in the case.
Apparently, family of the diseased has approached Minister for Health James Reilly so that a fair inquiry is being done. The letter sent to Mr. Reilly is reported to have explained why the family is so keen on a public inquiry instead of "any private or confidential HSE inquiry".
Moreover, James Reilly has claimed that it's important that whole truth of Ms Halappanavar's untimely death comes out wide open so that such incidents can be avoided in the first place.
Reports have confirmed that interviews of staff at the hospital would be completed in the coming three days. It would be worth seeing what results are being derived from the investigation.
