Kuwait: Health Minister Shaikh Dr Basel Al Sabah ordered the formation of a neutral committee to investigate the death of a child at a dental clinic in Fahaheel.
He said that the probe panel was formed of professors at the Faculty of Dentistry at Kuwait University to investigate the circumstances of the death of Abdulaziz Al Rashidi, stressing that the result of the investigation would be announced immediately.
Shaikh Basel confirmed coordination with Interior Minister Sheikh Khaled Al Jarrah Al Sabah to prevent the doctor who caused the incident from traveling.
The doctor was suspended from work until investigations are completed, he added. He stressed that the ministry adopts a policy of zero tolerance when it came to the safety of the citizens and residents, and allows no error or negligence by staffers of health facilities.
The ministry will take the necessary legal measures in case if there was any medical error behind Rashidi’s death, he said.
Head of Ahmadi Oral Health Program Dr Habbaba Al Mazidi said the child’s treatment was according to technical protocols, bearing in mind that Rashidi was in the fourth session of treatment and was given local anesthetic previously without complications. She added the anesthetic is approved and is given to thousands of patients daily.
