Yazmín Luna, a mother of a family who took her two-year-old baby from the emergency room to the Children’s Specialty Hospital, denounced negligence on the part of a doctor who, by giving her baby an exaggerated amount of medicine, caused his intestines to paralyze.
The mother of the family indicated that the doctor left the office to the waiting room and asked her the reason for her visit, to answer that “a fever is not a reason to come to the Emergency Room” and that she did not even take the baby’s temperature nor his vital signs.
“The doctor did not take me to the office, she went to the waiting room where I was and told me that a fever was not a reason to take her to the emergency room. I told him that I had taken her to another pediatrician and that he had given me 3 mg of the medicine and he told me that it was very little, so he increased the dose to 6 mg and increased the frequency to every 4 hours, “said the mother.
He indicated that on Tuesday morning the girl felt worse and he took her back to the emergency room, he reported to the personnel who treated her on that occasion the amount of medicine indicated by the first doctor and they told him that it was an exaggerated amount and frequency, reason for which her intestines had been paralyzed and that is why the minor was so bad.
