Mother as a son, 4, dies less than 24 hours after being sent home from the hospital despite the symptoms of "sepsis"



The heart with hearty mothers caught her son when he managed to clean up less than 24 hours after her doctors sent home with a clear one.

Little Sheldon Farnell, 4, was released from Sunderland's Royal Hospital last Sunday, despite the fact that Mother Katrina claimed she had all the signs of sepsis.

Little Sheldon Farnell, 4, was kicked out before doctors even got the test results

The "joyful" schoolboy was dropped out until the doctors even got the test results – which would reveal that he has a potentially deadly blood poisoning.

He was hurried back to A & E after the collapse of the next morning – but the deadly infection has already retreated.

Shell-shocked Katrina, 23, cried "I went away" to Gran Nicol, 46 years old when doctors fought vain to restart the heart of her son.

She was angry, "Actually, my boy died, and he gave us the false hope that she was all right.

"I had to spend the money to give him a good Christmas, but now I'm going to spend the funeral.

"If they gave us blood test results in an hour, as if they were going to be here.

"I constantly questioned them about everything I thought was wrong.

"I knew he was not good, I did not want to go, not let him go."

His uncle Daniel Robson said, "The doctor returned and took a blood sample on Friday – they told Katrina to return for an hour with the results.

"She kept asking each hour but nothing came back, [the results] did not return until Sunday night and Sheldon was released.

"He had a lumbar puncture and he could not even walk – he should not be released.

"He had all the signs of sepsis, he was yellow, he was sick and had diarrhea."

The family is now asking the hospital to answer why Sheldon was sent home.

Gadar Gary jumped up, "He had the rest of his life in front of him and was taken from him.

"I turned to the doctor and said," I blame you for the death of my grandson. "It's just negligence.

"They should never be sent home, at least until they have blood tests. We've lost our beautiful grandson.

"It was the star of our lives, the house is now too quiet, the Sunderland Royal Hospital has a lot to answer."

Gran Nicola, whom Sheldon lovedly called "Mommor," added: "Sheldon was a very fun, loving, caring, cheerful little boy.

"He continued his life and his heart stopped and tried to get him back.

"They did a heart massage, and his pulse was so slow, and then he stopped again. Katrina just said he was gone – and he died in his arms."

"We will continue to keep Sheldon's family fully up-to-date and we can not comment yet."
