CHR steps in to investigate plasterering newborn’s mouth
Officials of Commission on Human Rights arrived at the Cebu Puericulture Center and Maternity House, Inc. to investigate on the complaint of the parents of a newborn whose mouth was sealed with a tape.
There is also an ongoing investigation by officials of the private hospital on who should be held liable for the incident.
A nurse previously explained that the tape was placed to prevent a pacifier from getting dislodged.
Lilibeth Liona, CHR-7 investigator said they could not point out violations yet as they are still waiting for parents to file formal complaint. /Correspondent Michelle Joy Padayhag
