DONEGAL GIRL GETS €1.25M IN MEDICAL ‘NEGLIGENCE’ CASE

first_imgAN 11-year old Co Donegal girl with cerebral palsy has won a €1.25m interim payment to cover her care for the next three years as part of a settlement of her High Court action over alleged negligence during her birth.Ardara girl Jessica McHugh, the court heard, is spastic quadriplegic and has to use a wheelchair.Mum Louise, from Belcoo, Ardara sued the National Maternity Hospital (NMH), Holles Street, Dublin, on her daughter’s behalf for alleged negligence and breach of duty arising from personal injuries she suffered at the time of her birth on July 20,2002. The claims were denied.Ms McHugh was admitted to the labour ward of the hospital at around 9pm on July 19, 2002.It was claimed there was a failure to properly or at all interpret a CTG trace and, at one stage, the CTG was stopped for 45 minutes and Ms McHugh told to go for a walk.It was further claimed there was later a failure to to make a decision on the basis of an abnormal CTG to deliver by caesarean section and a failure to have the baby delivered at the earliest possible opportunity.Jessica had to be resuscitated on birth and later had further seizures.The hospital said the CTG trace was interpreted in a reasonable manner and a decision to stop CTG monitoring to allow the mother to mobilise was also reasonable.Eoin McCullough SC, for Callan Tansey solicitors, told the court that Jessica is a full time wheelchair user and can understand a great deal of what is said to her.Approving the periodic payments, Ms Justice Mary Irvine said the type of settlement was a cast iron way of dealing with Jessica’s care .She said in three years time the court will again look at Jessica’s care and hopefully the legislation allowing for periodic payments will be in place by then.DONEGAL GIRL GETS €1.25M IN MEDICAL ‘NEGLIGENCE’ CASE was last modified: October 11th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Fort event explores history of correspondence

first_img o What: “Written Word” activities and exhibit. Free.o Where: Fort Vancouver Visitor Center, 1501 Evergreen Blvd.o When: Noon to 3 p.m. Sunday. (Center is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.)If you could send only one letter home a year, what would you tell your family?That is one of the questions — and opportunities — on tap Sunday at an exploration of 180 years of the written word at Fort Vancouver.“It’s a neat topic to look at through time,” said Cassie Anderson, park ranger at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. “Through most of history, most people couldn’t write. In our park history, we see that.”When the Hudson’s Bay Company established Fort Vancouver as its regional headquarters, “The upper-tier folks were literate. You can watch that change through the decades,” said Anderson, the site’s historic programs coordinator.Examples of the spread of literacy will be part of the event, along with historical re-enactments and hands-on activities for families.The event will be from noon to 3 p.m. at the Visitor Center, 1501 Evergreen Blvd., across the street from the east end of Officers Row.“We have original Hudson’s Bay letters in our collection, and they will be on exhibit Sunday,” Anderson said.One eye-catching example of 180-year-old correspondence came from John McLoughlin Jr., son of Fort Vancouver’s chief factor. It’s done in a style called cross-writing. After filling the page, he turned the paper 90 degrees and wrote at a right angle to the earlier lines.“It’s hard to read; you have to try to make the eye focus on the right lines,” Anderson said.It’s possible that John Jr. wrote that way to save paper.“Paper was scarce, and the letter was folded into its own envelope,” she said. “They didn’t want to use another piece of paper for an envelope.” John McLoughlin Jr. used “cross-writing” in penning this letter from Paris in 1832.last_img read more
