Doctors at St Philip Geriatric Hospital and QEH Bungle Diagnosis and a Son is Left to Mourn the Death of His Father

Submitted by David Weekes
Why no x-ray?

Why was no x-ray ordered?

This is a very emotional issue for me so I will try to keep focused while making this submission.

Three months ago my father, the late Samuel Weekes sustained and injury while he was at the St Philip Geriatric Hospital.

Daddy was injured on the 11th of January 2013 and sustained what the attending doctor called “soft tissue damage”.

That Doctor prescribed Panadol, Paracetamol and Voltaren. Five days later, on the 16th of January, Daddy was transferred to the QEH.

Eight days later on the 24th of January, I received a call from the QEH indicating that Daddy actually suffered a fractured hip from his fall on the 11th of January during which time a doctor is prescribing Panadol and Voltaren.

QEH requested me to come and sign consent forms for an operation, which I did the same day.

    I remember there was a US president, i think was Garfield, long before X-rays and scans, he was shot at the world fair in Buffalo………..well his doctors diagnosed all sorts of things for him and gave him all kinds of treatments and ended up killing him from over-diagnosis…………what did he die from……………….gangrene………….something you very rarely hear about since the advent of x-rays and scans………

    GP………that did not stop Garfield from being over-diagnosed and dying now did it??

    @ BU family.

    I do not think that my Father or anyone was/is going to live forever. He was 86, a diabetic, had Alzheimer’s, had had two diabetic induced comas and a number of other ailments which older persons have.

    I know death having, in quick succession, buried my sister almost 2 years prior and my Mother in 2009. So don’t misunderstand what I am stating here and I want you to note that the QEH and the Geriatric Hospital, while both part of the Ministry of Health, are separate entities in law. Daddy broke his hip at the Geriatric Hospital in St Philip (GHSP) NOT the QEH.

    I would hope while reviewing this incident you examine the process and the details of (i) Daddy’s injury at the GHSP (ii) the time that elapsed before I was told of his injury (iii) the time that elapsed before the GHSP transferred him to the QEH, (iv) the medication he received at the GHSP during that time (v) his examination thereafter at QEH (vi) the time that elapsed before I was told of his need for an operation (vii) my treatment by QEH staff re signing their incorrect consent forms for said operation (viii) the issue of Daddy’s body “disappearing” in the morgue

    There are some things that you readers migth read between the lines since David Weekes does not want to be sued for defamation.

    I feel that Samuel Weekes’ family is entitled to knowing all the aspects of the medical care administered to him, don’t you? .

    During a separate meeting I requested with QEH officials (not the Geriatric Hospital now) after my father’s death, I asked the following questions.

    1. When did my father arrive at the QEH? What time was he admitted to the hospital? (day/time)
    2. Was my father accompanied? By whom?
    3. How long was the party who accompanied him at the hospital?
    4. Was any medication prescribed for Daddy while he was in the A&E? What was it?
    5. What is the protocol associated with cross institutional intake of patients? Does someone from the sending institution in this case the St. Philip Hospital bring any documents/case files on the patent? Are there such documents of file?
    6. Were QEH staff told was the nature of my father’s injuries and/or how he had sustained them? What were they told?
    7. Was QEH provided with any information on the medication prescribed by the St. Philip Hospital? Did such information include medication that he had taken up to the time of his being admitted to the hospital? What was that medication?
    8. Were x‐rays taken? When? Please discuss the x‐rays
    9. Given your determination of Daddy’s condition, post the x‐rays, does the QEH think that the medication being administered at the Geriatric hospital was adequate for his injury?
    10. Was any medication prescribed for Daddy while in the hospital?
    11. Is there a list of all medications that was administered to my father?
    12. *** mentioned pain killers, ** and an anti‐coagulant, what was the purpose of the anticoagulant?
    13. Is this standard medication for a patient with soft tissue injury? Why would it have been prescribed?
    14. When did QEH realize that the injury was a broken hip? What did you do then?
    15. Why was the family members who came to the hospital not told the nature of Daddy’s injuries when they asked? Why were they told that he had a slight flu when he did not?
    16. When was it determined that, based on his broken hip, that an operation was required?
    17. What extra treatment/action was taken with regard to Daddy?
    18. Why was no surgery effected when Daddy first came to the hospital?
    19. If kin were present on the 17 and 18th what was “the challenge to have the consent form signed by a family member?
    20. Why was I not called, for one week?
    21. What were the results of the post mortem? Please explain/expand
    22. Will we be supplied a copy of the X‐rays?

    After meeting with QEH, I requested an official letter replying to these questions.

    I have asked the blogmaster to upload their response for you to read.

    Tell me if they refused to answer 19 of my 22 questions?

    I wrote and requested Xrays of Daddy’s broken/fractured hip (while they were doing his autopsy), and offered to pay for them, they state “the X-Ray report was read verbatim at the meeting …. and there is nothing more that can be added by the QEH”

    I have sought the support of the Coroner’s Office or the CEO at QEH, the CMO at the Ministry of Health,the Office of the Minister of Health with no success.

    Again I cry into the night, is there no QC who will come to my rescue?


  5. Well Well May 1, 2013 at 3:14 PM #

    GP……… are still missing the point………….Garfield had at least 5 diagnosis, all wrong, there were no scans and MRIs then………..this is 2013 with scans and MRIs and doctors are still misdiagnosing without using the available scans and MRIs that have been invented for the benefit of the patient and still getting it wrong.


  6. Georgie Porgie May 1, 2013 at 3:23 PM #

    If you can get legal assistance, these are the important issues to pursue.

    It seems your relative had a visible soft tissue injury secondary to his fall.

    It seems your relative had a fractured neck of femur secondary to his fall.

    It seems that this was not picked up early. Could have been diagnosed with a high level of suspicion [call it educated guessing], but elderly folk especially are prone to this injury after falling.

    Such patients tend to have a poor prognosis and tend to succumb eventually to the complications of bed sores.

    You said that your relative was receiving Panadol and Paracetamol. I hope they know that these are the same thing, and your relative was not recieving a toxic dose, due to impaired hepatic function that tends to accompany old age.

    in the light of the above possibility, you want to find out what agent was used to induce your relative at surgery. If this agent is one that is eliminated by the liver mainly this synergism might have led to acute hepatic toxicity

    David, if I can find it I will ask one of my assistants or colleagues to send you a ppt on paracetamol toxicity.

    Here is the response from the QEH referred to by David (Weekes).
    Look forward to the information. It seems not necessary to have to state the following but a human life is not defined by age.


  10. Well Well May 1, 2013 at 4:18 PM #

    They just passed the buck (the blame) back to District Hospital without giving any satisfactory information.


  11. lawson May 1, 2013 at 4:30 PM #

    CCC seems to advocate for a system like in the movie Logans Run where the consumption of resources must be managed so everyone is killed when the reach the age of thirty. Any death which could have been avoided must be investigated if only to make sure it doesnt happen again, that is what will make this mans death easier for his family knowing he was a catalyst for change and the possible saving of other senior citizens.

    Lawson………..not only senior citizens but everyone, i too had a run in with incompetent doctors and it could have cost me the use of my legs with spinal injury.

    Carson probably does not think he will ever see three scores and ten………….the way the economy is going, he may be right.


  14. Well Well May 1, 2013 at 5:05 PM #

    The doctor at QEH gave me a prescription for Paracetemol, when i filled the prescription, there were so many large tablets that i asked the pharmacists if he expected me to eat all of those, it took me a year to go through them and only if i could not handle the pain i took them……….just imagine an 86 year old who had unknown, and undiagnosed injuries, those pills would have been toxic. Same with the Valium, highly additive if used every day, but they encourage you to eat them down.

    @Georgie Porgie




    You are so true!!!

    My step grandmother was in a nursing home on Welches Road, just below Govt Hill. She either walked into a door or fell. She told the nurse that she was not in any pain. That she was not hurt. The nurse, however, watched her and noticed that she was favoring one side was walking with a slight limp. She called the attending Dr. who ordered an X-ray. He told the great nephew who looked after her for us the same thing you outlined above. She did have a fractured hip and was confined to bed. She died at 97, less than a year later. She was also suffering mild dementia. The hip never mended. She had no bed sores. The nurses turned her often and gave her masssages.

    @carson cadogan

    “For heavens sakes man, the man was 86, let it go”

    I am 81 Mr CCC and I have children and grans and great grands.

    The joy of seeing them and playing with them each day my LORD allows me to live past that 3 score years and ten cannot be measured in silver or gold. If one of them goes before I do, I would miss them sorely and would investigate it too.

    I hear you telling Weekes let it go, sweep it under the rock, and I who would wish to live to 150, (if mine does not fail me) commend him for his balls.

    I pray that endoskeletal technologies advance to restore this body bent now with osteoporosis

    Just for arguments sake thou heartless man let us suppose that instead of dying from a gangrened hip injury that caused Sam to slip away on his bed in B5, suppose that there was a nurse or Dr Babb at the QEH practicing their own form of mercy killing, you know, that big word, euthanasia would you be so quick to get on that time allotment totem pole to say “let it go?”

    I would not even ask an imbecile like you if it was your mother if you would be similarly persuaded.

    But then again Carson, that is the man you are, one soured by your own experiences, saddled with the GT Panty, it is easy to see where your mindspace is CCC.

    Weekes, I seems by their response that they are hiding something, get a lawyer a good one, behold an oxymoron too, not any of the ones Plantation Deeds lists, and given the extents of his list, you don’t seem to have any choices.

    Just had a thought Weeksie, write to one of the Jamaican lawyers taking Myrie’s case, with all the anti -bajan sentiment circulating they might just be willing to take your case.

    There is some potential irony in that young Weekes, a CARICOM laywer fighting the case of a CARICOM citizen who is suing CARICOM!

    Ignore fellows like Coitus Interruptus Carson, poor fellow, de troubles pun he home front got he distraught poor sole, en he striking out.

    GP seem to say you gots a case en GP ent no slouch in de medical department


  18. Hants May 1, 2013 at 6:22 PM #

    GP wrote “DIAGNOSES WERE MADE LONG BEFORE modern technology.”

    Most diagnoses are still made without modern technology. A Doctor uses technology to confirm or disprove his initial diagnosis.

    86 year old man falls off a bed. 99% of doctors would expect to find broken bone or fracture somewhere.That is common knowledge.


  19. Hants May 1, 2013 at 6:30 PM #

    @David Weekes,

    Most reasonable people support your search for the truth about what happened to your father.

    Stay strong.


  20. Simple Simon May 1, 2013 at 9:09 PM #

    @Well Well ” in the US…first thing you do is order tests or scans to determine the source of injury and render a diagnosis.”

    No, No.

    The first thing a good doctor does (if the patient can talk) is TALK to the patient, and LISTEN fr the answers. Most of the time the patient, or accompanying family member/friend/caregiver can tell the doctor exactly how the patient was injured.

    The very best doctors know how to TALK and how to LISTEN.

    Doctors in the U.S. order expensive tests and scans because they have devilish lawyers sitting on their shoulders,ALL the time.

    The doctors in the U.S. are practising CMA.

    Cover my ass.


  21. Simple Simon May 1, 2013 at 9:27 PM #

    @Well Well | May 1, 2013 at 10:05 AM…”medical history, age, etc. etc. are standard information for patients to give a hospital or doctor”

    Medical history is not only about the past and what illnesses you had as a child. Medical history is also about what brings you to the doctor today. My doctor fr example always begins by asking “so what brings you here TODAY”

    Then I can tell him about the traffic accident, the fall, the headache, the burn, or the fact that I have become convinced that I am Leonardo da Vinci.

    Then the doctor moves forward from there


  22. Simple Simon May 1, 2013 at 9:48 PM #

    @Well Well “the most important thing to the intake clerk at the QEH when i was brought in by ambulance, was if i attended church”

    Oh dear you are a fool indeed.

    The religion question is also asked at hospitals in the great white north too.
    The intake clerk is NOT trying to make you go to church, and there is no need to spit on anybody. They are asking so that they can send (or NOT send) a minister of your faith to see you while you are sick. Many people find it comforting to have a visit from their minister of religion when they are sick.

    If you are not religious then you do not have to see the minister, and he/she can spend time with somebody who appreciates the visit.


  23. Simple Simon May 1, 2013 at 9:55 PM #

    @Well Well “what did he die from gangrene something you very rarely hear about since the advent of x-rays and scans…that is the one time i strongly felt like spitting on another human being”

    Dear Well Well:

    I am really glad that you decided to leave Barbados. You are a complete moron indeed. Any Bajan child past 11+ age can tell you that x-rays and scans can neither diagnose nor treat gangrene.

    The poor President might have lived IF antibiotics were available then.

    But IF my grandmother had balls she would have been my grandfather.


  24. Simple Simon May 1, 2013 at 10:14 PM #

    @David Weekes “12. *** mentioned pain killers, ** and an anti‐coagulant, what was the purpose of the anticoagulant?
    13. Is this standard medication for a patient with soft tissue injury? Why would it have been prescribed?”

    I should really let Doctor Georgie Porgie handle this , but very likely the anticoagulant was prescribed because your father was going to be immobile for a while and anticoagulant would prevent the formation of blood clots. Patients can get blood clots if they are laid up for a while and these clots can travel to the heart or brain and can kill..


  25. Simple Simon May 1, 2013 at 10:19 PM #

    Dear Well Well:

    Were you wearing your seat belt when you had that accident in Barbados?
    Were you the driver of the vehicle?
    Were you sober?
    Had you taken any prescription drugs in the days before the accident?
    Had you taken any non-prescription drugs in the days before the accident?
    Had you taken any illegal drugs in the days before the accident?

  28. Alvin Cummins May 1, 2013 at 11:28 PM #

    @Well Well and David Weeks.
    The old people used to talk about “scattering the blood.” That is the purpose of the anti-coagulant. Old people bruise very easily and as the old people would say they get “bruised blood” wherever they hit. These blood clots are very easily dislodged and passing through the circulatory system, when they enter the smaller veins or arteries like in the heart, or brain, can cause a blockage resulting in a heart attack or stroke. So the physician was quite right in prescribing an anticoagulant. In addition things like Aspirin, (Panadol etc (acetamenophen) are blood thinners also, so ordering panadol, or paracetamol would also be helpful in this early preliminary phase of the case. People who are not familiar with medicine, the effects of medication, and how they work and the side effects have a tendency to “second guess” the physician, forgetting that a physician is a trained person and generally knows what he is doing. An untrained person can never have more knowledge than one who is not trained. I would never attempt to drive a tractor trailer, even though I might have been driving for fifty years. That type of work requires training. The human body is a complex and delicately balanced system. Things can easily go wrong at any moment in a way that no one can forsee or prevent. there comes a time when all the intervention will not produce a favourable result.
    I know that my time will come and when it does I have no control over it or the way I will go. Accept death as a fact and when it comes rejoice in the life that the deceased lived and remember whatever joy he brought. No one can prolong life longer than it was destined to be.

    @pieceuhderockyeahright!May 1, 2013 at 5:27 PM “I pray that endoskeletal technologies advance to restore this body bent now with osteoporosis”

    The technology to prevent osteoporosis was invented 30 billion years ago.

    It is called the sun.

    It may be too late for you, but please take those lovely grands and great grands outside to play in the sun.

    Bajans who live or have lived in Barbados all the days of their lives should not have osteoporosis.

    Run in the sun, walk in the sun, play in the sun, when you go to cricket at Kensington take a seat in the sun (even or especially if you can afford one in the shade) . Do like island gal and Pat and the other gardeners on this blog, spend time doing work in the sun.

    In the good old days when working class Bajans (that is most of us) had to go to the pipe to bring umpteen buckets of water in the hot sun, when we had to bring the goods home from town in a box on our heads, when we had to work in the ground osteoporosis was virtually unknown (at least among working, working class Bajans)

    In those days osteoporosis was a rich pampered white woman’s disease.

    Had a friend once, one of those “po’ great poppets” who told me I should never let my children play outside, that playing outside was not DECENT. I laughed at her.

    The message for today: let (no mek) your children play outdoors.

Suffice it to say this young man has a case, whether it will be deemed neglect, incompetence or whatever or whether they will just ignore him as they usually do when they are exposed as incompetent, is left to be seen……………I leave you in your ASS U MING mode.

    @ Carson Cadogan

    Your perspective and caution are both noted and appreciated.

    Sometimes when you turn up on a blog and put up your real name and air a sensitive topic like a CARICOM lawsuit or one where the circumstances of a death are suspect, you do so not because you have a desire to become popular Mr Cadogan, in fact the converse is true.

    Overnight you become branded as that troublemaker Weekes who is so uppity to feel that he can sue CARICOM or feels that his Father was “going to live forever” or more to the point “he jes want to get some sympathy ”

    Very few people know that I dislike limelight and would rather the remoteness of a secluded beach than the “so you’re David Weekes”

    The thing that happens Carson is that you sit down and give up just a little more of yourself with each encounter, minibus men parking in the middle of the road instead of the lay by, school children forcing their way in front of your car at non pedestrian crossings, unilateral changes in terms of a financial agreement, people climbing your wall and picking your mangoes because the land is Jah’s and pretty soon as they keep coming for the artisans and unionists, you say nothing and they then come for you and there is no one there to speak out on your behalf.

    My CARICOM matter might come to nothing, this matter of purported negligence might also come to nothing but you know what Carson you sometimes have to draw a line in the sand and say this far and no further

    Look around you nowadays and you see the little encroachments upon your living space. I am not an Israel with border issues nor a Barbados with Maritime issues with Trinidad.

    I am not a Miss Myrie purportedly being fondled by Immigration Officers, but I feel that this is the right thing to do.

    What is a man if he abdicates his duty? and slinks into the darkness whenever it seems like he has to challenge the status quo?

    History will not record me as a Rosa Parks but if I should fall here in these 144 sq miles for that which is my patent or for saying Samuel Weekes is not trash to be left to suffer for 3 weeks after falling from a bed 36 inches above the ground, at 86 years old and weighing 90 lbs.

    I am aware that I can loose but if it means that care for those “abandoned” in our medical facilities will improve if only out of fear for lawsuits Mr Cadogan then Daddy would not have died in these purportedly megligent circumstances for nothing.

    Every year the Gold Cup in Barbados can get millions of dollars to sponsor horses running around a track, I am sure that Samuel’s currency for those who knew him (and a few of you who might not know him) might elicit a few dollars for legal expenses, what do you think ?

    The account is in the name of Samuel Weekes at First Caribbean International Bank 6936081

    “Your perspective and caution are both noted and appreciated”

    As long as you know. A lot of things appear as “open and shut cases” then you realize that you open a can of worms that you wish that you could reseal. It is alright for these jokers to tell you to do this or that, it is you who will face the music alone.

    I had a friend who had an “open and shut case” against a company, but guess what he loss and damages which was awarded against him almost crippled him.

    The Caribbean is not America. If you loose you could really get hurt financially.

    @ David Weekes

    I will deposit $500 to Sam’s account David

    @ Coitus Interuptus Cadogan

    Burying 3 people can be a major drain on one’s pocket

    From your comments it is clear that you seem hellbent even after Weekes accepts your caution to make this remark about the money he is begging for.

    You are somewhat of a cur, giving advice to Weekes, presenting a face af concern for him, “if the case should go against him” yet no sooner that you express this concern, you append your remark about his financial state.

    You were not born of woman, nor untimely ripped from any woman’s womb you are rather the offspring, not of wolf as in the tale of Romulus and Remus, but of a she-dog bitch.

    I wonder if it is the older Weekes that offended you that caused the younger Weekes to incur your ongoing ire? Certainly you comment about Sam suggests so displeasure with the old man being 86 and abjuring the heavens for his son to ignore this negligent death and “let it go”

    The thing about comments coming from you CIC is that if you say walk people had better run.

    Weeksie, if Carson tell you let it go, given my knowledge of the man, stick with it.

    Anything that to your simplistic reasoning appears to be, or potentially become a thorn in the side of the DLP you rush into the fight, singing for your supper.

    The drainage workers left unpaid by Lowe Weekes’ possible suit against these negligent parties you are the Joseph Goebbles, Minister of Propaganda of the Democratic Labour Party ably assisted by George Payne and Owen Seethru running interference within the BLP

    You pompaset in this blog space and any space you occupy but for many who know you you are an empty shell.

    Nothing shows our character more than the things we are prepared to fight for , in spite of your social or politician allegiances.

    It is really very simple and obvious, the M.D. regardless of his status or attachment to the Geriatric Hospital, was negligent in not ordering x-rays. This is standard procedure, especially in the elderly and frail. Mr. Weekes, suing the doctor and the Geriatric facility will not bring your Daddy back but it is still necessary, in order to remind both the facility and the doctor what their responsibilities are in providing standards of care to patients. I hope you pursue this to the nth degree so that the elderly are protected in Barbados. You and your family were paying them to do so.

    My sincerest thanks to all of you who continue to write and call and give your advice, and support, during this unfortunate incident.

    I must express appreciation to the PieceoftheRockYeahRight!! for your support.

    I had spoken in passing neither believing, nor expecting any outreach from QCs nor the $$ sent.

    In offline comments from **, I clearly understand the fear any BU supporters has, is that by making a donation to any cause on BU, their identity will be known.

    PUDR, by sending a friend to make the deposit, you removed that “connecting the dots” ability, to use your words.

    @ June

    Things like these lawsuits take time but those who know me will tell you what will happen, WILL HAPPEN

    @The Advocate Newspaper

    My thanks to Mr. Anthony Brian for printing (part of) Daddy’s eulogy, (it was 7 pages long and i understand your constraint)

    I note, as did others, you devoted 2 whole pages to his Eulogy. My family’s appreciation for this act of kind remembrance.

    @ Carson Cadogan

    I hear you

    For those who are not familiar with flesh eating bacteria, this young woman was afflicted one year ago, there is another story about a teenager who lost both arms and legs just months ago.
