A deadly accident has not made John Vujcich withdraw from local body elections for Northland District Health Board and North District Council.
John Vujcich's survival after a fatal accident with a rotary slasher is actually a miracle. However, a part of his leg was cut in this horrible accident. John was in his farm in Bisset Rd on Sunday at the time of the accident.
According to report by the Health and Disability Commissioner, a 75-year-old man at the Whangarei Hospital lost his life in wake of lack of communication and poor documentation.
A Whangarei optometrist has been banned from practicing for six months and has also been asked to pay $10,000, after misdiagnosing teenager's eye condition.
Desmond John White was unable to diagnose an abnormal condition in Jared McGiven, 16. White's ignorance did not let him refer Jared to a specialist and the damage was caused. Resultant of which, Jared's eye was surgically removed.
As per recent reports, it has been revealed that Whangarei Hospital is struggling against yet another confirmed case of meningococcal disease, the patient being a four-year-old boy who was rushed to the hospital earlier on Tuesday.
Madness of guessing seven billionth children is not coming to an end as it is expected that the child has taken birth in Whangarei, which is north most city in New Zealand.
She is a girl, who has been named as Kora Jade. Tim Bowman, the grandfather of that child, is getting numerous phone calls in order to confirm the news, but he is surprised as well.
If this 12-year-old girl from Whangarei, who is presumed to be suffering from meningococcal C, tests positive for the disease then it would be the 13th case in the region.
