Hi all, another long time no post, but in fairness the twins take up a lot of our time
Anyways, one of our boys has a severely dilated kidney and 2 days after a scan, involving having a catheta inserted down his private and an injection of dye, then a scan to view the flow of dye, he became severely ill Two days later and was admitted into hospital and spent the week there, coming out last Thursday.
Today we had an appointment with the consultant regarding the outcome of the scan, and we're told that his illness afterwards was Ecoli!!!!!! And the hospital, nurses, doctors and consultant were aware of this 48hrs after being admitted into hospital. Is there any reason anyone knows of why we weren't informed. All the hospital staff used surgical gloves when dealing with our boys nappies (prior to the 48hrs they didnt) although we were changing the nappies and handing them over to be weighed, without gloves, we were also allowed to use the "family" facilities used by other parents at the hospital.
Is this normal. Btw, the consultant today, although mentioning that our boy had a significant Ecoli infection, she , for want of better words, brushed it under the carpet, avoiding any discussion or questions we asked.
We've racked our brains with this and the only conclusion we can come up with is that the infection was caught from the catheta (the consultant who did this scan mentioned that an infection, due to the procedure was possible)
Not sure what we're looking for really, but any advice, information would be sincerely appreciated.... Please feel free to let us know if any more information is needed.
