Family awarded compensation for son’s death

Posted in: Medical Negligence Wrongful & Accidental Death 

A family has been awarded compensation following the death of their son after two doctors failed to identify that he had contracted meningitis, reports the Telegraph.

Thirteen-month-old Bobby Bushell’s parents had taken him to Doncaster Royal Infirmary on the advice of their GP. While he was there, he was seen by a senior house doctor and then a registrar, both of whom failed to diagnose the condition, despite the baby having developed the classic rash associated with meningitis.

He was eventually seen by a consultant, who recommended that Bobby be transferred to Sheffield Children’s Hospital, but he died around four hours later.

The hospital trust had denied responsibility for Bobby’s death, however a judge ruled in the parent’s favour at a recent court hearing.
