A hospital’s underfunded neonatal unit was 16 nurses short when a premature baby died, an inquest heard.
Staff were preparing to move Charlotte Jones from Southend University Hospital, Essex, to a specialist care center at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, when her lungs gave up and repeated resuscitation attempts failed.
She was born prematurely at 23 weeks, on June 2, 2009. Her twin Alexia lost her fight to life after just 21 hours. – Mail Online
Lack of funding. What an interesting excuse – seeing as how we determine the availability of said funding. We also determine the requirement of funding.
So, at what point will we stand up and demand that life should not be regulated by funding? At what point will we demand that every child has the support that they need? At what point will we demand that the quality of healthcare we receive be only the best? At what point will we demand that each of us be guaranteed a life free from the struggle for survival, always fighting for funding? At what point will we demand adequate nutrition for everyone? At what point will we demand At what point will we demand a basic respect and compassion for each other and all life on Earth?
How much worse does life on Earth need to get? Just look around, things are not getting better. Sure, some things are becoming more convenient, but only for those who can afford it. Happiness and the fulfillment of basic needs should not be determined by funding, or a lack thereof.
