    A six-year-old girl thought to have died from sepsis was in fact suffering from a blood condition triggered by E coli infection, an inquest has found. Coco Rose Bradford was taken to the Royal Cornwall hospital in the summer of 2017 suffering from stomach problems and later transferred to the Bristol Royal hospital for children, where she died. The following year an independent review flagged up failings in her care in Cornwall and the Royal Cornwall hospitals trust apologised for how it had treated her. Her family were left with the belief she had died of sepsis and could have

    Advice on how new mothers with sepsis should be treated is to change after two women died of a herpes infection. The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists says viral sources of infections should be considered and appropriate treatment offered. This comes after the BBC revealed one surgeon might have infected the mothers while performing Caesareans on them. The East Kent Hospitals Trust said it had not been possible to identify the source of either infection. Kimberley Sampson, 29, and Samantha Mulcahy, 32, died of an infection caused by the herpes virus 44 days apart

    In her report, the Coroner states her main concerns as follows: Ms Bruce was cared for in the community by several different District Nurses. This meant that it was not the same nurse who was always seeing the wound. No photographs were taken for reference and the electronic records could not be accessed by the District Nurses while they were in Ms Bruce’s home. This meant that all information that could have been available was not, meaning Ms Bruce’s change in condition was not fully appreciated. Leicestershire Partnership Trust has learned from this and District Nurses now have

    In her report, the Coroner states his main concerns as follows: Informed consent and maternal choice regarding mode of delivery That this appears to be a recurring theme in obstetric practice. The culture in this area appears to still not fully accept the principles of informed consent set down in case law of the appeal courts (Montgomery) and in NICE guidance (Caesarean Section). It also does not seem to prioritise the wishes of pregnant women or holding full and frank discussions about the risks and benefits and pros and cons of different options. He noted that he had conc

    Findings Findings of this investigation included: The existing systems for triage do not always take into account the colour of a patient’s skin. This may influence a healthcare professional’s assessment of an infant’s/child’s physical signs. Staffing standards that relate to the treatment of children in emergency departments cannot always be met due to workforce challenges, particularly in hospitals without a dedicated paediatric emergency department. Sometimes parents describe feeling powerless when trying to articulate their concerns for their child. Some healthcare

    A young NHS patient suffering a sickle cell crisis called 999 from his hospital bed to request oxygen, an inquest into his death was told. Evan Nathan Smith, 21, died on 25 April 2019 at North Middlesex Hospital, in Edmonton, north London, after suffering from sepsis following a procedure to remove a gallbladder stent. The inquest heard Smith told his family he called the London Ambulance Service because he thought it was the only way to get the help he needed. Nursing staff told Smith he did not need oxygen when he requested it in the early hours of 23 April, despite a doctor t

    An acute trust has been fined £2.5m after pleading guilty to charges of failing to provide safe care after the deaths of two patients. The Care Quality Commission brought charges against The Dudley Group Foundation Trust earlier this year over care failings in two separate cases which the regulator said exposed two patients to “significant risk of avoidable harm”. The trust pleaded guilty to the charges in July and was fined during a sentencing hearing today. The cases, involving 33-year-old mother of six Natalie Billingham, and 14-year-old Kaysie-Jane Bland [also known as Kaysi

    New monitors that can detect the deadly blood condition sepsis are being fitted at a Scottish children's hospital. The equipment will be installed at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow. Charlotte Cooper, who lost her nine-month-old daughter Heidi to sepsis last year, said she had "no doubt" the monitors would help save babies' lives. She told BBC Scotland: "You don't have time to come to terms with the fact that someone you love is dying from sepsis because it happens so quickly." Ms Cooper now wants to see the monitors installed in every paediatric ward in Scotland. "We need

    Key learning points Maternal sepsis remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the UK. Improving prevention and care of sepsis is highlighted in the latest Mothers and Babies: Reducing Risk through Audits and Confidential Enquiries in the UK (MBRRACE UK) report: Saving Lives, Improving Mothers’ Care 2017. One of the actions suggested is a ‘declaring sepsis’ alert as described below. Where sepsis is suspected a sepsis care bundle, applied in a structured and systematic way with urgency, can save lives.

    A FREE and LIVE virtual event made up of five educational webinars, Tuesday 8th - Thursday 10th September 2020. Co-produced by BD and Health Plus Care. Looking at the blood culture pathway is relevant to all of us right now. The crossover in symptoms between coronavirus and sepsis, means early diagnosis is even more urgent. We are all moving away from the mentality of 'just in time' to 'just in case'. Our speakers have been handpicked for their expertise in diagnostics, in clinical settings, and as known advocates for patient safety. They will examine what methods and best practices

    When a patient has sepsis, every hour before the right antibiotics are administered, risk of death increases. What has your experience been of the challenges with dealing with patient deterioration in a larger trust or hospital, or in a community setting?
