Stanley appalled by report

Sinn Féin TD Brian Stanley said he was appalled by the report carried out by the Chief Medical Officer and also wants national guidelines on the use of a drug during labour.

“The report also concludes that poor outcomes, which were preventable, were identified and known by the hospital, were not adequately acted on.”

“I was informed this week in reply to my PQ to Minister Reilly that there are no national guidelines in place on the use of syntocinon in the maternity services. These need to be implemented as quickly as possible,” he said.
