My 22 months old niece died in the hands of their ER doctors on September 30, 2014 around 4:30 AM. There were no other patients seen - so they were not busy with anybody else. Yet, they neglected to care for their little patient - and let her died. She went in only with mild signs of dehydration. When she got there she alert, waved to the nurses there & said few words. They simply attached her to an IV and pumped speedily into her tiny body 2+ bags of fluids within 1 hour! They ignored and saw danger in the parents' plead for help. When she started showing signs of discomfort - with her heart beating raising up 200's - the said the machine wasn't working properly - when yet indeed the child's chest was pounding. They only took some blood sample and said it was mild high blood sugar reaction. Then she was squirming in discomfort and signs of swollen belly - they again disregarded her parents call for help. Finally when fluids were coming out of her nose and mouth - then they slowly tried to ponder the cause. When her oxygen level dropped dramatically and went into a seizure shock, then they decided to call people to help. By the time they decided to resuscitate her - her tiny feet and hands were already frozen cold ans stiffed. Later on biopsy confirmed that she had a tiny hernia creating a blockage. If these stupid professionals had known better to check her out for all possible causes then they wouldn't have drowned her to death! What knowledgeable professional would pump into 2+ bags of IV fluids into a tiny body so quickly within an hour!!! What professionals would pretend to know what to do - when they clearly didn't! Why didn't they instantly request her to be transferred out of there to another hospital where she could be helped! Her little life was in these professionals' hands for 3+ hours - and yet they let her died helplessly! How could they be allowed to be called an ER - and tell people they have pediatricians too. The ambulance called Elkins Park to confirmed that they have pediatricians and that they take children patients because they are knowledgeable! Yet - they saw no worth in this precious child. These guys need to know the pain they have caused to the families and friends of this beautiful angel that they killed because of their negligence and un-professionalism.
