Once again, Monday has been busy. While I was doing a change of dressing for a small girl with burns, our field coordinator came to the OT and told us that a pregnant woman had been admitted to ER with the umbilical cord prolapsed out of her vagina.
It is sad. We lost two patients today. The pregnant woman with burns whom we sent to Benson Hospital on Friday, died that night. The baby was stillborn. The mother's blood pressure remained low after transfer and she succumbed hours later.
