Autopsy to be done on body of child who died at Black River Hospital

An autopsy is to be conducted on Monday on the body of three year old Tayeehsa Bennett whose death a month ago at Black River Hospital in St. Elizbeth triggered claims of medical negligence by her family.
 
The authorities have been given clearance to carry out the procedure after Tayeehsa's family initially indicated that it was seeking legal advice.
 
There were also calls for an independent pathologist to observe the autopsy.
 
Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton, who visited Black River Hospital shortly after Tayeesha died, said the autopsy will assist in determining whether the medical team followed procedures.
