‘Nurse failed to call doctors as our girl died’

A nurse watched as a little girl lay dying instead of calling nearby doctors to attend to her urgently despite “clear indications” her condition was deteriorating , it has been claimed. In an apparently misguided attempt to comfort her the nurse lay 16-month-old Isabella Janew on her side and, according to her parents, stroked her hair rather than immediately alerting doctors who were doing their rounds on the same ward at the time. The disturbing account comes amid a catalogue of alleged failings by staff during the toddler’s final days at the troubled Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, revealed today ahead of an inquest into her death which open tomorrow [MON].
Isabella’s death raises fresh concerns over the standards of care at the hospital in Bristol, which is currently under investigation by the NHS Isabella was born in May 2013 with serious heart problems requiring a valve replacement and underwent an operation at the hospital. But shortly afterwards she suffered two cardiac arrests and catastrophic haemorrhaging.
