Ecuador: Trial begins for two doctors for failure to treat timely in death of French citizen

Posted on April 22, 2014 • Filed under: Ecuador, Latin America Health reported that the trial began yesterday in Quito for two doctors accused of allegedly not providing emergency medical care to a French citizen in 2009. On September 12, 2009, Charlotte Mazoyer, a volcanologist, resisted a robbery attempt in Guápalo (Quito). She was shot in the chest which left her seriously wounded. According to witnesses, when Ms. Mazoyer entered Clinica Pichincha (also a defendant in the case), she was allegedly denied timely care for apparently not providing a credit card as a guarantee of payment. Subsequently she was provided services and had lost a total of 8 liters of blood. The Mazoyer family investigation claims their daughter entered the clinic at 20:10 and was not operated on until 22:00. One of the defense attorneys claims that the victim did receive timely and professional medical care. The trial is expected to last several days. Read Article
