Maureena has been receiving care at St. James hospital since 5/29/13. However, St. James does not have a pediatric department and has not given care that Maureena's parents are satisfied with. Maureena's father John has requested a transfer to Community Medical where Maureena can receive care in a pediatric department with certified pediatric nurses, with the states only board certified pediatric surgeon, pediatric intensivist and pediatric pulmonologist. This request for transfer made by John to secure the best care and a second opinion for Maureena is being ignored therefore denied by the staff at St. James.
This petition is to ask that St. James uphold John's right as the parent of Maureena to change providers when dissatisfied with her care and seek a second opinion. Maureena is 5 weeks old and deserves to receive care in a facility with certified pediatric professionals where her father is requesting her care be administered.
Please help us tell St. James that Maureena deserve the best care available to her and we support her father's request to transfer Maureena to Community Medical where she can receive such care. We hope St. James will uphold John's rights as Maureena's father to chose her provider.
