So cross with hospitals bad practice.

So cross with hospitals bad practice.

Post  queen caggy on Thu Apr 16, 2009 7:52 am

Some of you from RK know this already but ive got to have my baby tested for HIV, HEP B and HEP C tomorrow.
When they did his tongue tie they dont think the equipment was sterile!

I am so angry.

He was 3wks old when it was snipped, at 6wks he was admitted for a week with an infection-they never found out why!

I will be asking if the 2 things are connected-seems odd that he got ill afterwards!

Do you know what type of infection he had? And if so can it be passed on through equipment?
I really feel for you, it makes me angry too. We put all our trust into these people to look after us.

I think it's disgusting they should put you through all that worry.

Hospitals are hopeless.
Lucinda was born with a talipees (foot bent back against her leg from being squashed in the womb). When they checked her before coming home they noted in her red book that she was being referred for physiotherapy. They said I'd get an appointment through the post. She was born on the 21st December so I gave it until the new year and still hadn't heard anything so asked the midwife if it usually took so long. She said it can take a few weeks but she'd chase it up if I hadn't heard anything the week after. I still hadn't so mentioned it again to the HV when she came. She wrote something in her diary. Over the next few weeks I mentioned it to the HV again two or three times. Still no appointment. So I phoned the physio dept myself and they said they'd never heard of Lucinda and had no record of a referral. She could only have physio if she was referred so I needed to get in touch with the maternity unit. On speaking with the post-natal dept, I discovered there was no record of us because I'd never gone onto post-natal but had been discharged from the delivery suite. They had to go find my notes from another building where they'd been archived, which took three days, and then fax them through to the physio dept so I could get an appointment. What a complete farse! In my opinion this needed sorting out as soon as possible while her bones are still soft enough to manipulate. The longer it was left the more of a problem it could've been. Luckily it is fine but it might not have been. I keep meaning to make a formal complaint but haven't yet. I really ought to make time.

Anyway, hope all is well with the tests and you really should take some sort of legal action either way.

I hate hospitals - never wanted to be there in the first place!

OMG Emma thats terrible.
Hospitals for me have made me lose all confidence, they was on a fine line (i used to work for nhs too so a bit of knowledge isnt always a good thing) anf that line has been crossed now they have hurt my baby.

I have no idea what his infection was, they never found out, the knew what it wasnt tho. He had lumbar punctures and everything bless him.

He was very ill, respiratory problems, spikes in temp, pain, diorehea, vomiting and had blood tests, IV antibiotics, ultrasounds, even had a DR stick his finger up his bottom!

My poor baby.

I wont sleep much tonight or worry.

hello, well we went and he had some numbing cream on his arms and elbow creases as they wasnt sure which place to use.

He waited 20mins then had the blood test and screamed-so much for pain numbing cream!
I was giving him a breastfeed at the time so imagine how much he would have shouted without!

Results will take 5 working days and someone is going to ring us to sort out a review of his medical records seen as he was admitted to hospital so soon after the event.

A panel of Drs etc need to review the info and check his investigations!

So its not over by a long shot.

I knew the lady today too-she was the specialist MW who helped me devise my birth plan and was trying to help me have a VBAC (but was on holiday when i was admitted so couldnt back me up).

So we got to wait and see.

Results are back, we have the all clear, no lasting damage just got to see if they make a connection between his illness at 6wks and the equipment!

So glad for you and him it's all clear. No matter how unlikely it was that's a terrible thing to go through.

Do you think they'll be able to find out if his infection was related to that if they don't know what the infection was?

That's a relief.

Kept forgetting to say, yes, Lucinda's foot seems fine now. She's seen a physio three times. She has shown me some massages to do on her foot and leg and she is happy with how it's going. Not seeing her again until October now, to check she is bearing her weight on it properly ready for walking.
