Accident victim dies


26-year-old Keisha Young died this morning at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) almost a week after she was involved in an accident with a motor cycle last Monday on Thorpe’s Road, St James.

Young’s brother, former Barbados cricket all-rounder Franklyn Stephenson told Barbados TODAY his sister sustained injuries to her mouth, head, shoulder and knee following the incident, but was treated and discharged from the hospital.

“She subsequently collapsed at home on Thursday and died this morning at the QEH,” he disclosed.

Young was the mother of four-year-old Kadon.

    how could an accident victim with such serious injuries be sent home so soon,she should have remained under medical care until healing and physical improvement is visible,with a bit more care she would have survived,RIP.

    Yet another motorcycle victim.

    This is so sad. The family should seek legal guidance and if there are sound grounds, sue the Hospital. It is gross inhumane , that a person sustaining the kind of injuries in an accident, is treated and sent back home only to collapse . This inhumane behaviour of the Hospital Doctors , demonstrates gross incompetence. The cause of the death gross negligence of the attending Doctors of Keisha. RIP.

    Condolences to the family, how the hell the QEH. Doctors send that young lady home with such serious injuries what is wrong with those damn doctors do they need to have they head check people of Barbados need to start sueing these damn doctors for malpractice maybe they would start administering the right medical treatment and make the right decisions

    Rest easy, sweetie. You always had a kind word to say to me whenever our paths crossed.

  23. Alex Alleyne January 4, 2016 at 5:26 pm

    We must take note. Not so long ago the QEH sent home someone who later died within a short period of time .
    Its time to investigate .
    No more Oops.

    From multiple, GOD AWFUL experiences dealing with the nurses at the hospital, especially the triage nurses, I believe that they need to take a few courses in: How to Treat People Who Are in Pain Humanely. Too many of you up there have stones where your hearts should be.
    And some of the doctors bout hey? Smdh… NUFF ah dem keeping Two Sons in business.

  25. Roger Gibbons January 5, 2016 at 3:22 pm

    They should’ve kept her for observation a little longer. RIP sis.

    Rest In Peace angel, may your home be made in God’s perpetual heaven. Didn’t know you but whenever I saw you, you always had good words to say. Condolences goes out to your young son and family members. R.I.P.
