Case 4

Emergency Department

Scenario: A grandmother presents with her four-year-old granddaughter at Emergency. She apparently had been "hot, coughing, crying, and got stiff and jerky for a few seconds".

Result:

  • Meningococcal Septicemia went undiagnosed for many hours and the child expires.
  • The family, and all involved treating the girl were distraught.
  • A court case was brought against the hospital and concluded the patient might have survived had the delivery of medical care been more appropriate and expeditious.
  • Had a photo been sent to a paediatrician or dermatologist requesting their opinion, the outcome might have been very different.
