MINISTER for Health and HIV/AIDS Jelta Wong told Parliament yesterday the report on the investigation into the deaths allegedly caused by the use of Propofol at the Port Moresby General Hospital was complete.
He was responding to questions from East Sepik Governor Allan Bird relating to whether findings of the investigation conducted, specifically into the case of young Rex Wanzing, had been made available to the family.
Bird asked that since there were others apart from Wanzing, who suffered from treatment at public hospitals, what opportunities for recourse or compensation were available either through the public health system or some other system?
“The report is finally finished,” Wong said.
“It has been brought to my office.
“We are going through our legal and administrative processes to ensure that everything is in place before we talk to the parents.
“I’ve spoken to the parents and I’ve set up a date for next week to sit down with them and with the secretary and our lawyers so that we can work through this process.
“The Attorney-General will be with us in that meeting and he will let us know what the punishment and compensation are.”
