the netizen then stated that her sister was admitted to the hospital and during her sixth month of pregnancy, she found out that her baby had hydrops.
“‘yun yung mga baby na lumalaki ‘yung tiyan sa sinapupunan. Alam namin delikado ‘yun, kaya nung nagsabi ‘yung OB na ipa-CS (Caesarean section) agad namin kapag nag 7months, lumayag kami.”
The doctors then told them that the baby could die after it was delivered.
The netizen said:
“Edi MAS masakit, baby niya ‘yan e. First baby pa. Pero hindi siya nag pa-apekto. Pinapakita niya sa’min na ok lang, tanggap niya ‘yung mangyayari.”
Her sister then experienced bleeding and complications. The doctors, on the other hand, sent them a handwritten note, written by her sister. According to the note, she already wanted to get out of the hospital because she can no longer bear the pain that she's suffering from.
However, the doctors told them that the patient must've just written it out of boredom.
On August 9, the doctors finally told them that the patient has already given birth. This then raised questions about the situation.

Eventually, her sister lost her life. She claimed that the death was caused by the negligence and the questionable procedures done by the doctors and the medical staff who attended to her sister's needs. She also added that despite knowing that the baby is suffering from Hydrops, they still declined to give her the medical attention that she needed.
