The latest in a collection of tales from the world of socialized medicine:
Sharon Willoughby and Richard Sum are considering action against Kings Mill Hospital in Nottinghamshire, for a maltreatment they and their baby recieved this past November.
Their baby, now 10 weeks old was delivered into a toilet after Willoughby’s cries for help were ignored by staff. They had given her labor inducing drugs, but, the patient says, she had not been examined for progress of the birth.
Sum fished the baby out of the toilet. Their cries and pages for help went unanswered for 15 more minutes because the nurses ‘thought she was asking for tea’. Sum helped baby and mom back into the hospital room, then had to leave them to summon assistance.
Willoughby required a transfusion due to blood loss, and remained in the hospital for three more days.
