Newborn suffers fractured shoulder, health problems during delivery at GPHC

Delon Immanuel, the three-week-old infant who suffered a fractured shoulder during delivery

A newborn suffered a fractured shoulder and respiratory failure during delivery at the Georgetown Public Hospital and his mother is laying the blame squarely on the shoulders of the hospital staff.

“They said the baby too big and to get him out they have to position him to get him out. They said that that make the shoulder length of his arm fracture,” were the words of Jaenann Roberts, whose son Delon Immanuel, suffered a fractured right shoulder while being delivered at the Georgetown Public Hospital.

Roberts spoke with Guyana Guardian holding her son, who is wearing a cast on his shoulder and arm, as she recounted her unpleasant delivery.
