The cause of the controversial death of a 29-year-old businesswoman after undergoing three cosmetic surgeries in a clinic in Mandaluyong City last Sunday has already been determined.
Based on the result of the autopsy on Saturnino’s body, the patient had multiple organ failures, secondary to complications of the cosmetic surgery.
Sr/Supt. Marcelino Pedroso, Chief of Special Investigation Task Group, said there are indications of negligence on the death of said patient.
The official said due to the findings, they are reviewing the filing of reckless imprudence resulting to homicide against the doctors who performed the said procedures.
The doctors who could be facing charges are Samuel Eric Calderon Yapjuangco, Jose Jovito Cordero Mendiola, as well as the three nurses of The Icon Clinic.
