Parents moving forward with suing GMH

by Krystal Paco

Guam - Parents Juleus Calimpong and Johanna Borja are moving forward with suing the Guam Memorial Hospital for cutting off the tip of their 2-week-old's pinky finger.

As we've been reporting, back in December the couple brought baby Amaya-Esther to the hospital to treat her high fever but left with the baby's fingertip missing.

Calimpong tells KUAM today that a recent court hearing granted him and Borja guardianship for Amaya so the couple may sue on their child's behalf.

Meanwhile, GMH administrator Joseph Verga previously confirmed the investigation on the matter had come to a close, but because of the pending litigation, can no longer release further information.
