iciHaiti - Insecurity : Looting and violence in the pediatric emergencies of the La Paix university hospital
On Wednesday around 2 hours before midnight, 3 men presented themselves to the pediatric emergency department of the La Paix university hospital (Delmas 33), with an infant referred by the Maternity Isaïe Jeanty, who could not take care of the newborn baby for lack of space.

Greeted by two female doctors and after verification, they were informed that the pediatric ward was full and could not take care of the baby and that they had to refer to another health center.

Explanations that did not satisfy the 3 people who demanded by raising their voice and becoming aggressive that the baby be taken care here, one of the men allegedly showed a police badge and made threats against the establishment if they did not accede to their request. Growing more and more violent, the two terrorized doctors on duty, fearing for their lives, managed to escape.

In the absence of the doctors, the 3 men left with the baby. However, they returned around 3:00 am to carry out their threat.

Vandalizing and smashing the windshields of health workers' cars, ransacking hospital offices, smashing windows in the maternity ward and firing handguns in the air many times in the facility, triggering a monster panic among the medical staff who tried to flee in all directions in search of a place to take cover.

After their misdeeds, the 3 men left the hospital without being worried in the absence of a security service, despite the promises of the Ministry of Public Health to strengthen security in hospitals or this kind of violence without being frequent is unfortunately not uncommon.
