TWO internal Hospital reports raising concerns about the performance of Dr Dolores Moyano Ontiveros were made prior to the routine operation which resulted in the death of a staff nurse.
The JEP has learned that the two ‘incident reports’ about Dr Moyano were made in the days leading up to the gynaecological procedure she carried out on Elizabeth Rourke.
But those in charge of the doctor either failed to act or the incident reports did not reach them in time to stop Dr Moyano from operating while they were investigated. One of them involved a caesarean delivery just days before Mrs Rourke’s death.
This week Dr Moyano was cleared of the manslaughter of Mrs Rourke, who died following complications encountered during her operation in October 2006.
