Miscarriages in Emergency

When, on Nov. 5, 2013, The Telegram published Barb Sweet's account of a woman who suffered a miscarriage in a local hospital emergency room, the response was swift. The number and variety of stories from people who had similar experiences continues to grow.

I have been going back and forth the last few months with kidney problems, I am made to wait in the ER waiting room at times for hours and then when I get inside, usually treated with disdain and indifference. On the floor is completely different, they couldn't be better, but, in the ER, they need to be retrained. There are some good nurses there I will say that, and some very good doctors, but, for the most part the nurses need to be retrained to learn how to triage properly and keep the druggies and drunks waiting while people like me with serious kidney problems, and pregnant women, and people with heart problems are seen first and as quickly as possible.

The Telegram accepted an offer from Nalcor Energy for a three-day tour of a collection of Lower Churchill Project work sites in Labrador beginning Monday , Sept. 15, 2014. A single reporter was sent. The costs for the tour were covered by the Crown corporation, with the exception of a single night’s hotel stay and a breakfast. The total cost is not yet available.

Using interviews and discussions from the tour, The Telegram offers a five-part series providing an overview and update on the province's controversial $6.99-billion power project, with a look at related topics including: project logistics, camp life and worker safety.
