Well known National President of the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship  (FGBMF) here in the Cayman Islands, 67 year old Christian preacher Rev. Harold Paramlall, is suing the Cayman Islands Health Services Authority (HSA) after his wife died of cancer in 2009.

Rev. Paramlall alleges his 61 year old wife, Leila Paramlall, died prematurely at the age of 61 of cancer from misdiagnosis. He claims negligence on the part of hospital staff and is suing for medical expenses, loss of earnings and damages from the court.

He claims that samples taken from his wife’s test that came back negative in 2004 were the same slides that showed up the cancer in 2006.

In his statement of claim the plaintiff says the HSA failed to “provide suitably experienced staff” capable of diagnosing his wife’s cancer.

“The Defendant’s staff were not suitably experienced in diagnostic techniques and should have referred the deceased overseas immediately carcinoma was discovered,” Rev. Paramlall states in his writ filed in the Grand Court earlier this month.

The claim also states that the George Town hospital failed to provide adequate or proper post-operative treatment after Rev. Paramlall’s wife had a hysterectomy as it did not have “proper regard for the deceased’s symptoms by taking note of the deceased complaints”.

“After my wife’s operation,” he said, “she complained of severe abdominal pains, which should have alerted the doctor in question to the probability that complications had developed.”

Leila Paramlall was a well known and respected lady in the Cayman community.
