NewsHealthRobert makes medical historyBy Staff Reporter – October 23, 2019 921 Advertisement Facebook Print WhatsApp Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Robert Sheahan, Ireland’s first liver and double lung transplant recipient pictured here with his two transplant consultants, Mr Emir Hoti, Director of National Liver Transplant Programme at St. Vincent’s University Hospital and Mr Lars Nölke, Head of Heart and Lung transplantation unit at the Mater Hospital. Conor McCabe Photography.A YOUNG County Limerick man has become the first person in Ireland to receive a liver and double lung transplant.And now Robert Sheahan from Askeaton has become a national advocate for organ donation.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The 29-year-old underwent the long and complicated transplantation operation last June and is now well on the road to recovery.Two surgical transplant teams – one from the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital’s National Heart and Lung Unit and the other from St Vincent’s University Hospital’s National Liver Transplant Unit – worked for around ten hours on the life-saving operation.Robert was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) as a baby and despite having the chronic disease, he led a relatively healthy life until his mid-20s when his condition deteriorated.Robert said, “In the summer of 2018, I had the first of three lung collapses and had to be rushed to hospital in a pretty dramatic way. In December 2018, after the third collapse, I was transferred by ambulance to the Mater Hospital which became my home for the next eight months.”Like many people living with CF, Robert had multiple organ issues.According to Lars Nölke, Head of Heart and Lung transplantation unit at the Mater, Robert’s lungs were failing when he was admitted to the Dublin hospital. However, his liver function was so poor that he would not have been able to withstand a lung transplant only.The transplant team at the Mater began discussing the potential to transplant both liver and lungs at the same time with the team from St Vincent’s.Lars Nölke said: “This was a life-saving treatment for Robert as I don’t believe he would have been able to leave the hospital without the double lung and liver transplant. The team here at the Mater worked very closely with our colleagues at St Vincent’s planning the protocols for every scenario imaginable. After much discussion and hard work, we were ready to put Robert on the active transplant list.”Having waited in hospital for eight months, remarkably, on the same day in June that Robert was put on the active list, donated organs became available. The teams from both hospitals moved into action with the SVUH team decamping to the Mater with their specialist equipment ready for a long and complicated day in theatre.Emir Hoti, Director of National Liver Transplant Programme at SVUH got to work first of all, transplanting the liver.Mr Hoti said: “Robert has benefitted the most of any person I’ve seen or treated for transplant. The fact that this is a first for Ireland shows how far we have come in terms of our transplant programme. The operation itself, while complicated, was a success and our collaboration with the team at the Mater was superb.”While Mr Hoti was performing the liver transplant on Robert, Mr Nölke was simultaneously transplanting the heart from the same donor to another transplant patient.When the liver transplant was complete, Lars Nölke and the Mater team took over to transplant first one lung, and then a second. Approximately 15 medical professionals, from anesthesiologists to scrub nurses were involved in the ten-hour operation.The operation was a success and a few days later, on his 29th birthday Robert Sheahan “came to” in the ICU unit.He spent the next two months recovering in the Mater and has now been discharged home, but is making weekly visits to the Mater for follow up.“Now I am really beginning to see the benefits of the double transplant, and the substantial improvements it has made to my health. Recently a company who supplied me with the oxygen equipment I had to use regularly came to take it all away as I no longer need it and that was a real rite of passage.“I’m very grateful to the person who decided to donate their organs – without them, I might have a very different prognosis, instead I am looking forward to being able to travel and see some of the world next year,” said Robert.Professor Jim Egan Director HSE Organ Donation Transplant Ireland said, “Organ donation saves lives. Robert’s remarkable journey and recovery and the fact that this is the first double lung and liver transplant in Ireland is only made possible through organ donation. We would ask everyone to discuss this life-saving issue with their families.” Previous articleHeyday: The Mic Christopher Story for Richard Harris International Film FestivalNext articleLove Island ‘showboating’ may be on the way to City Hall Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Twitter Email TAGShealthLimerick City and CountyNews RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick on Covid watch list TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Forbearance Activity Rate Dips Under 5% Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The forbearance report from Black Knight’s McDash Flash Forbearance Tracker showed the largest week-over-week decline in forbearance activity since early January. Active plans dropped by 77,000 overall in the week ending Tuesday, March 9.As of that date, 2.6 million homeowners remained in forbearance, which represents 4.9% of all mortgagees. This also marks the first time the forbearance rate has dipped below 5% since early April 2020.What’s impacting the numbers? Black Knight’s Andy Walden reports that the week’s improvement was due to a combination of February month-end expirations as well as the proactive extension and/or removal of borrowers who were set to see their plans expire at the end of March.While scheduled March month-end expirations are down from 1.1 million a week ago, there are still more than 800,000 plans currently listed with March expirations, Walden noted.”This represents a daunting task for servicers as they review upcoming expirations for removal or extension based on recently revised HUD and FHFA’s allowable terms of up to 18 months for early forbearance entrants.”The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently announced extensions of several measures that the agency says will align COVID-19 mortgage relief policies across the federal government. This announcement, which extends temporary measures (previously set to expire March 31) until the end of June follows the White House’s February 16 moratoria extension applied to all federally backed mortgages through the same period.Said measures include provisions for borrowers with Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac-backed mortgages who may be eligible for an additional three-month extension of COVID-19 forbearance, according to a press release. This additional three-month extension allows borrowers to be in forbearance for up to 18 months.Early extension activity suggests servicers continue to approach forbearance plans in three-month increments, with the bulk of would-be March expirations being extended out through June (as it now stands), Black Knight reported.Says Walden/Black Knight, “With more than 800,000 plans still listed with March month-end expirations we’ll be watching the numbers closely over the next few weeks for elevated levels of removal and extension activity.” Home / Daily Dose / Forbearance Activity Rate Dips Under 5% Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Loss Mitigation, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Gap Widens Between Demand and Inventory Next: Why Nonwhite Neighborhoods Could Face Increased Flood Risk The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Even that 15 percent is too high for them. Why cant the central allow them to travel free?” BhushanWhile pointing to the circular, issued by the government, Bhushan pointed out that the same was only for for people who had come recently and emphasised on issues surrounding the implementation of circulars.”Most of the migrant labourers are asked to go to the hospital and bring certificate to show the concerned authority, why this things are happening?Where they will go and bring these medical certificates, it is very difficult for them to go to hospital for medical certificates” – Advocate Prashant BhushanSolicitor General Tushar Mehta urged that all rules were being followed to tackle this issue and that the all logistics were being to action in order for their service.”We are following all rules as to how we can provide all kinds of facilities to migrant labourers and we are concerned and we are doing our bit to help them all. Ground situations are being monitored, for example when a migrant labourer goes back, he or she will have to placed under quarantine, so SOP has to be in place. Govt has been proactive. we are concerned with the migrant worker.” – Solicitor General The supplemenatary affidavit had been filed by Jagdeep Chhokar in the plea seeking directions to allow migrant workers across the country and to return to their hometowns and villages, and to arrange for their safe travel by providing necessary transportation to this effect.The Affidavit averred that the States should not be charging stranded migrant workers who have negligible financial support and zero earnings, for their journey back home.On 29th April, the Ministry of Home Affairs had issued an Order wherein migrant workers, pilgrims, tourists and other persons who are stranded at different places were allowed to move back to their residence/home towns. The Order further mentioned that buses/road were to be the mode of transportation, and on the basis of a PIB notification dated 1st May, the Indian Railways were to commence operations to transport these people back to their homes.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

S. Ahluwalia also rapped the Superintendent of Police, Vidisha for trying to challenge the correctness of the order sheets of the Trial Court as well as trying to challenge the countrywide lockdown imposed by the Central Govt. and also trying to undermine the authority of the Court.Mater before the CourtThe Court was hearing the Seventh application filed under Section 439 of Cr.P.C. for grant of bail.The applicant was arrested on 22-12-2016 in connection with Crime No. 254/2016, registered by Police Station Lateri, Distt. Vidisha for the offence under Sections 327/34, 506-B,294,323,302/34 of I.P.C.The allegations against the applicant are that he along with co-accused demanded money from the deceased Mukesh for purchasing liquor and when he refused to give money, then he was assaulted on his head by means of a lathi, as a result of which he died.BackgroundEarlier, the applicant had filed an application for grant of bail on the ground of delay, which was registered as M.Cr.C. No. 37605 of 2019.The Court found that the Police Department was grossly negligent in executing the Summons/Bailable Warrants/Warrants issued against the witnesses, including the Doctors and Police witnesses, therefore, the Superintendent of Police, Vidisha was directed to appear before the Court and to explain such gross negligence on the part of his subordinates.Shri Vinayak Verma, S.P., Vidisha had appeared before this Court on 16-9-2019 and assured the Court, that in future, there shall not be any negligence on the part of his sub-ordinates.However, as per the Applicant in the present case, the things did not improve, and once again, the summons/bailable warrants/warrants issued against the Doctors and Police personals returned back either served or unserved.The applicant also filed a copy of the order sheets of the Trial Court, therefore, the Superintendent of Police; Vidisha was directed to appear before the Court through Video Conferencing.It was submitted by Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, that in fact there is no negligence on the part of the Police witnesses and in order to substantiate his contentions, Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, went to the extent of challenging the correctness of the orders passed by the Trial Court.Basis for challenging the order sheet of the Trial CourtShri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, had given an assurance in M.Cr.C. No. 37605 of 2019 on 16-9-2019. Thereafter, the Trial was listed on 19-9-2019, but still the warrants issued against the witnesses returned back either served or unserved.On 4-12-2019, Doctor Rajendra and police witnesses were not present and therefore, fresh arrest warrants were issued, and the case was fixed for 15-1-2020.Challenging the correctness of the order sheet dated 4-12-2019, it was submitted by Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, that in fact Dr. Rajendra and Sub-Inspector were present before the Court, however, due to reference on the sad demise of one Advocate, the Court work was suspended.When Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, was directed to point out from the order sheet as to whether the presence of the above mentioned two witnesses was mentioned or not, then after going through the order sheet he fairly conceded that the presence of these two witnesses is not mentioned.Further, he also accepted that these two witnesses have also not signed on the margin of the order sheet.Thus, the Court noted, that it was clear that Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, without any basis, tried to plead that the Trial Court had recorded an incorrect order sheet.”Didn’t Monitor the Case”Further, it was submitted by Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, that although the police department is responsible for the delay up to the month of March 2020 but since, the Trial Court was closed on 3-4- 2020, otherwise, his remaining two police witnesses would have appeared.The Court noted that the manner in which the submission was made by Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, it was clear that he was trying to put blame on the Court, that since, the Courts were closed on 3-4-2020; therefore, prosecution witnesses could not be examined.Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha, could not point any reason for his confidence, because he has fairly conceded that after giving an assurance before this Court on 16-9-2019, he did not monitor this case.Court’s Analysis and DecisionThe Court remarked,”One thing is clear that after giving assurance before this Court on 16-9-2019, neither Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha took pains to monitor the present case, nor his Gazetted Officer acted in compliance of circular dated 30-3-2019 issued by the Police Headquarter. In spite of his gross negligent and irresponsible conduct after 16-9-2019, Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha tried to challenge the correctness of the order sheets of the Trial Court as well as tried to challenge the Countrywide lockdown imposed by the Central Govt. and also tried to undermine the authority of the Court.” (emphasis supplied)Therefore, the Court noted, it is clear that Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha has no respect for the Fundamental Right of an accused of speedy trial as enshrined under Article 21 of the Constitution of India and did not show any remorse for his irresponsible and negligent act after 16-9- 2019.Further, the Court opined,”An undertrial cannot be kept in jail for an unlimited period at the mercy of the prosecution. Under these circumstances, when the applicant is in jail from 22-12-2016 and the prosecution has not shown any interest in early disposal of the Trial, this Court is left with no other option, but to allow the application for grant of bail.” (emphasis supplied)Lastly, the Court left it to the discretion of the Competent Authority to consider as to whether the irresponsible and negligent act of Shri Verma, S.P., Vidisha warrants any departmental action against him or not?Further, the Court said it is for the Chief Secretary, State of Madhya Pradesh and Director-General of Police to consider as to whether non-appearance of Doctor and Police witnesses before the Trial Court, warrant any departmental action against them or not?Lastly, the Chief Secretary, State of Madhya Pradesh was directed to keep a copy of this order in the service book of Shri Vinayak Verma, Superintendent of Police, Vidisha.Also, the Court ordered that a compliance report be filed before the Principal Registrar of this Court, within a period of 15 days from the date of the order.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Story
