Baby Dies From Overdose At Children’s Hospital; What You're Saying On Facebook

KIROTV.COM - Seattle Children's Hospital is under investigation after an infant died from a medication overdose, reported KIRO 7 Eyewitness News. A letter from the CEO of the hospital reveals an intensive care nurse accidentally gave an infant 10 times the intended dose of a drug called calcium chloride. The child was not in good health to begin with, and that overdose was enough to take the infant's life several days later, KIRO 7 reporter Jeff Dubois said. In the letter, CEO Dr. Tom Hansen said, "An important way we can make medicine safer is if we admit that mistakes occur and openly investigate them. We must learn from these events ... and error-proof our care processes."

FACEBOOK REACTION:

Valerie Undeberg Davis: Poor parents! Prayers are with them. :(

Paulette Oots-Robbins:  Very sad.....I realize it was human error and I am sure that nurse is suffering from this incident, but how devistating this is....

Dina Hastings: I smell lawsuit!!!! My condolences to the family....this should have NEVER happened. Makes me want to think twice about taking my kids in when they are sick!

Larrissa Nelson: we should be able to trust hospital with our childrens life.. and if we cant do that them then who can we trust...

Holly Lynn Baker: oh my gosh! this is so unacceptable. i understand mistakes happen, but there are so many systems supposed to be in place that you have to be pretty neglagent in order to achieve this

Willie Krauss Gilmore: I couldn't imagine how the parents feel. These "accidents" need to stop. We entrust our children to these people to keep them safe and make them better. This should NEVER happen.

Ian Langley: ‎10 times more than what was required,how can you make that mistake?that is not an error it is gross incompetence beyond belief..my sympathies to the child and parents.

Lindsay Groves:  I think that is BS. Don't they go to school for that kind of stuff. So now a little baby lost it's life due to someone that didn't know what they were doing. Doesn't anyone know how to read anymore. My word the poor family. They are in my prayers.

Molly Foth: I am deeply sorry for the family i Lost my son "due to doctor accident" 15 years ago........the pain never goes away............
