Dr. Hadiza Bawa-Garba, 43, received a suspended sentence for the involuntary manslaughter of Jack Adcock after a court heard that she had made a “catalog” of mistakes.
The pediatrician was later fired, only to provoke a backlash from doctors who argued that he was being the scapegoat for a hospital in chaos. She was allowed to return to work last November under a series of restrictions.
But yesterday a medical court ruled that she no longer had to work under supervision as she was now “above the expectations of her educational level.” The decision was welcomed by medical groups who said Jack’s death in 2011 was due to a “system-wide failure.”
Jack’s parents Nicky, 47, and Victor, 55, rejected the measure, saying the mother of four should never have treated the patients again.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ms Adcock said: “I find it absolutely disgusting that she was able to go back to work as if nothing had happened. She killed my son.
“We have to live with it until we die.
“How do you sleep at night? She got a second chance, we didn’t. ”
The teaching assistant at Glen Parva, Leicester, added: “She has never shown any remorse for what she has done. She is so bad.
“The whole system is corrupt, it has no end. I really don’t know how you sleep at night. ”
Jack, who had Down syndrome and heart disease, was admitted to the Leicester Royal Infirmary on February 18, 2011 with shortness of breath and vomiting.
He died 11 hours after cardiac arrest from sepsis triggered by pneumonia.
Sepsis occurs when an infection, such as blood poisoning, triggers a violent immune response in which the body attacks its own organs. However, the diagnosis is notoriously difficult.
Dr. Bawa-Garba initially diagnosed her with gastroenteritis and did not respond to blood tests that showed she had a kidney infection.
He played the role of three doctors and supervised six wards because the hospital was so tight. A computer glitch also meant that he was given the results of the blood test over the phone.
In 2015 she was sentenced to two years in prison for gross negligence for involuntary manslaughter. After yesterday’s hearing, Dr. Bawa-Garba said that she was “pleased” with the latest decision, but that Jack’s death had “lasting and profound” effects.
The Daily Mail ending sepsis scandal has called for better training to help medical professionals identify the symptoms of the UK’s leading cause of preventable death.
