Boy, 9, died of sepsis after hospital ‘dismissed concerns’ about appendix

A nine-year-old boy died of sepsis eight days after he was discharged from hospital with influenza and sent home with painkillers, an inquest has been told.

Dylan Cope was admitted to Grange University Hospital in Cwmbran, South Wales, with abdominal pain but was discharged after a medic “dismissed any concern” about his appendix.

Days later the boy had a ruptured appendix and sepsis diagnosed, and he died at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff on December 14, 2022.
