Kimberley community members to picket at KHC


Kimberley community members plan to picket outside the Kimberley Hospital Complex (KHC) tomorrow in support of parents of the two-year-old toddler, Zoey Beckmann, who died at the hospital last month.

Edward and Jo-Ann Beckmann blame the hospital for their daughter’s death. They earlier told Courant that their daughter would have been alive should the medical practitioners at the hospital have been more attentive.

They allege that their daughter was given the wrong medication upon admission of tonsillitis, fever, and ear infection.

Edward Beckmann said they want justice.  They want the hospital to account for their daughter’s death and to be informed of the proceedings of investigations launched by the Provincial Department of Health.

He says the Kimberley Hospital Complex (KHC) will be served with the memorandum tomorrow.
