Misdiagnosis by the hospital! The parents watched the one-year-old child vomiting blood and died! To see a doctor in Australia, please remember these two life-saving words...
In other words, Australia’s medical benefits are world-renowned,
The whole people not only enjoy free medical treatment,
Even some scaryly expensive drugs,
It is listed in Australia’s PBS (Pharmaceutical Benefit Plan) at every turn,
Some even tens of thousands of drugs in other countries,
Only a few dollars in Australia...
Therefore, in Australia,
There is no uncurable disease,
Can't afford medicine.
Although Australia has such unbelievable medical benefits,
But the bugs in the medical system have been criticized.
Sometimes it is very serious!
There used to be a pair of young parents,
I just realized the happiness of having children,
I just watched my baby daughter Isabella,
To die in front of you and helpless!
The reason turned out to be a misdiagnosis by an Australian hospital!
Isabella’s father suspected that she had swallowed the button battery.
So he hurried to the hospital with Isabella.
After arriving in the emergency room, Isabella began to vomit severely.
Mr. Rees immediately told the doctor:
Your child may have swallowed a button battery by mistake!
The doctor said Isabella was fine,
It's just that there is a murmur of breathing, and it is probably just a mild throat virus infection, which can be cured by taking some medicine.
Regarding the possibility of swallowing the battery, the doctor said that the child's throat is so small that it is impossible to swallow a whole battery.
Choose to believe the doctor!
Three days later, while Isabella continued to vomit,
Even started to have a fever.
Mother Rees found something similar to a water polo in the child's feces, which was suspected to be tar.
The parents watched their daughter in so much pain, and their hearts suddenly picked up, and drove their daughter to the hospital again. But this time the doctor just listened to Isabella's heart rate with a stethoscope, indicating that the matter was not serious.
And the doctor said that no matter what the child swallows, if it can’t digest it, it will be excreted from the body.
Still choose to trust the doctor!
One day a few weeks later, Isabella burst into tears at night, and Ms. Rees hurried to her daughter's room. The moment the light was turned on, the family was crying on the spot!
The bed was full of blood!
The Rees and his wife immediately sent their young daughter to the hospital again. This was the third time they came to Sunshine Hospital. Only this time, Isabella was X-rayed.
Through X-rays, I saw a button battery that was huge for a baby, stuck in Bella's throat!
But it was the repeated delay of medical procedures that caused Isabella's condition to continue to deteriorate.
Because he missed the best time for treatment, Isabella passed away in pain ten minutes later.
You know, it is quite painful to vomit blood because of the battery!
There was an experiment: put the battery in the ham and observe the changes in the ham.
After only three hours, there were obvious burn marks on the ham! I don't know how much pain Isabella suffered before she died! Everyone’s hearts are broken when I think of this...
However, such tragedies are not alone!
Eventually died of cardiac arrest.
This poor couple Shadrach Sumaru and Kathryn Ram living in Melbourne,
Just watched Isaiah, his only 2-year-old child,
In front of my own eyes, my condition gradually deteriorated until I passed away...
The sad and ironic thing is that they are already in the hospital,
Can't wait for the doctor.
On September 9, Isaiah began to have a fever. The couple saw that their son had a severe fever, so they planned to call an ambulance to send the child to nearby Dandenong Hospital for treatment.
But on the other side of the phone, after the first responders learned about the condition, they only advised them to give the child some medicine, instead of sending an ambulance.
The hospital also said: "It's just a fever, just give him some Nurofen or Panadol. There is no need to send him to the emergency room."
Mom Ram said that they just regarded her as a fool, an overreacting mother. Completely negligent about the child's condition.
Even if the mother repeatedly emphasized that she knew her son, he had never had such symptoms before, it would not help..
But on the 25th, they found that not only did their son's condition not alleviate, it was getting worse. So they picked up the phone and called for an ambulance, but got a rude answer:
This little illness of your son
There is no need to call an ambulance
But the parents were very worried, so they took their children to the GP.
The GP immediately called an ambulance and they arrived at the hospital at noon.
This is their ten hours,
After calling the ambulance twice and was rejected,
Finally, with the help of GP,
An ambulance was called and the child was taken to the hospital.
At that time Isaiah was already drowsy and had difficulty breathing.
But because there are no beds, they have to wait in the emergency room.
Even if the GP said that an emergency was needed, even if the two rushed to send the child to the emergency department, the hospital did not take it seriously!
The answer they got was:
Wait at least 2 hours!
Looking at the nurses and doctors coming and going on the corridor of the hospital, but no one came to see their poor child, the couple was anxious and afraid, but they had nothing to do!
I can only comfort Isaiah, who has a high fever in his arms, hoping to relieve his pain!
A few hours later, Isaiah's condition worsened.
When the child was in the arms of his parents, he had difficulty breathing and his feet began to turn purple.
At the end, the doctor appeared... When it was judged that it was a critical situation, more than 20 doctors and nurses appeared, suddenly surrounding the child, and preparing the child’s parents for the worst.
But it's all too late
The child died due to cardiac arrest ineffective
The hospital diagnosis may have died of pneumonia, but the child's specific cause of death may have to wait several months before they can find out.
No one can accept it
A good child
Mom Ram said, "My son died because all the medical staff did not ask questions about my son.
Is Dandenong Hospital
Kill my son! "
Just a small pneumonia
It's not a serious illness that cannot be cured
If at that time
As long as a doctor comes
Check the child's condition carefully
The child won't die
Just remember these two words!
Not long ago, Australia’s Daily Mail made a report:
Australian mother saved her sick daughter's life with two words!
This news caught everyone's attention!
After talking with the first doctor, the doctor and Ayla said that her daughter is likely to be suspected of appendicitis and needs to be hospitalized. But the doctor was not sure, so he wanted to find a pediatrician to ensure that the cause may be mesenteric lymphadenitis.
In this way, the child keeps talking about being checked, but in fact he has been waiting for treatment. From 5:7 in the afternoon to XNUMX in the morning of the next day, Ayla has been waiting for the doctor to come and do further treatment for her daughter.
But she was waiting for no one to care about. During the period, she stopped passing medical staff one after another, but they were all told that the child had to undergo an ultrasound examination first.
Seeing her daughter getting more and more uncomfortable, but lying on the hospital bed with no one caring, Ayla was very angry!
As a mother, she can't just sit like this...
She will adopt
After the doctors heard this word,
I was shocked for a moment,
Great changes happened next!
Since these two words were spoken,
Ayla and her daughter were immediately highly valued!
Less than 10 minutes,
Another doctor came immediately,
Started to discuss Marley's condition with Ayla.
Another 45 minutes passed,
Marley is already undergoing an ultrasound examination.
Less than 2 hours,
Marley was sent to the operating room for surgery.
Facts have proved that Marley's situation was already quite dangerous at the time. Her appendix was severely infected and perforated! After the diagnosis was confirmed, the doctor immediately prepared the operating room and urgently removed Marley's appendix.
Thinking that her daughter had endured the pain for almost 20 hours in vain, Ayla was heartbroken, and at the same time she was frightened: Fortunately, she took the initiative to apply for the Ryan rule, otherwise her entire abdominal cavity might be infected, and her life might be in danger!
Ayla, who knew the reason for this incident, was very angry, and published the incident on her Facebook page, and urged everyone to see if there is an emergency in Australia.
Be sure to tell this rule!
And this share
Also on facebook
It has been circulated in a short time
Many netizens expressed,
I have encountered such a situation myself.
Can Australian doctors be so fast?
Here to give everyone a popular science
The little story behind...
In 2007, Ryan Charles Saunders, a 3-year-old boy from Queensland, fell ill. After an examination, the doctor found that his glands were swollen and suspected that Ryan had mumps, so the doctor recommended that he be given Panadol.
But it was actually a misdiagnosis! At that time, Ryan got a malignant bacterial infection. In the end, he died of toxic shock syndrome due to misdiagnosis and delayed illness.
Ryan's experience caused a huge sensation in Australia. In the 4th year after his death, the law was changed because of his death! From then on the Lane rule was born!
When patients and their family members question the current rescue and treatment methods, they can introduce a second treatment opinion through the Lane rule!
If you are in Queensland...
There are three main steps for you to sign up for the Lane rule:
1. You can directly explain your questions and concerns with the attending doctor or nurse;
2. If the answer given by the doctor makes you feel unsatisfied, or there is something that can be added, then you can further discuss with the head of the nurse on duty;
