This is, NEGLECT, and it makes you want to, think more than TWICE (‘cuz it’s not enough!!!), before you PLACE yourself, and your newborn infant in the care centers, don’t it??? Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
A nurse from Taichung, Wu, in order to care for a male infant who’s hospitalized for jaundice, she didn’t, pay attention to him that he was, spitting his formula back up, after the infant was resuscitated, he was rushed by transfer to the VMH in Taichung; the infant, after being treated by therapeutic hypothermia, he was diagnosed with brain damage due to anoxia, five months ago, the infant was discharged from the hospital, by then he was, blind, and needed the feeding tubes. The Taichung District Court charged Wu with assault and neglect, sentenced her to five months in prison, that she can pay a fine without serving the time, and this can still be appealed.
The pregnant woman, Sun, on October 6th, 2015, gave birth to a male infant, Kuo at the Lin-Xing Hospital in Taichung, on the nineteenth of the same month, the infant male was taken back to the hospital for his check up, they’d found signs of jaundice, and assigned him to hospitalization that very afternoon. At eleven o’clock late in the evening, because the infant boy choked on the formula, couldn’t breathe, the nurse on duty for the midnight shifts, Wu didn’t pay attention, the infant became limp in his limbs, stopped breathing, ceased to have a pulse; as she’d finally discovered him, she’d immediately called up the doctor, Chien on duty, to resuscitate the infant.
Wu notified the family of the infant of him being in critical condition, and in the early morning hours of October 20th, the infant was lifted to the V.M.H. in Taichung to be treated. At the preliminary examinations, the Taichung V.M.H. found the infant male to lack the response of being scared, he couldn’t, suck, swallow, he became limp on his limbs, was in a coma, etc., etc., etc., decided to employ the methods of therapeutic hypothermia to treat him; the M.R.I. of his brains showed, that his conditions were caused by anoxia.
The Taichung V.M.H. treated the infant for five months, then, the infant was, discharged from the hospital, but he’d suffered severe optical nerve damages, and had complications from anoxia too, and relied on the feeding tubes, and need to be on the epileptic medications too.
The verdict pointed out, that the physician who’d treated the infant boy, Chien noted how there is, huge amounts of formula that was, drained out on the infant male’s airways, that the cause of his brain damage is probably from asphyxiation from choking on the formulas, and brain damage from anoxia. The male infant’s father testified, that he’d received a call from the hospital that his son choked on the formula and was in need of emergency resuscitation, that very evening, in the E.R., the infant had been diagnosed as anoxia caused by choking on the formula, and the family transferred the infant to Taichung Veteran’s Memorial Hospital to treat. On the records, the Taichung V.M.H. had, that on the night of emergency resuscitation, the E.R. doctors, Chien and the E.R. department had, diagnosed the infant as anoxia caused by choking.
The nurse, Wu denied her neglect toward the infant boy, the Taichung Court found her to have an awful attitude, that she should be punished, to set an example for all.
And so, these parents, they’d, left their young son at a afterbirth care center, thinking he’d be, well taken care of, but, because the nurse wasn’t paying enough attention, this young child is now, handicapped, and the nurse who was tending to this infant should be punished, it’s due to her negligence, that this young infant’s life got, ruined.
