A 14 year old boy was treated at a hospital for a broken arm following a car accident. A week later he was brought back to hospital where he was misdiagnosed with gastroenteritis after suffering from fever, diarrhea and vomiting caused by septic shock from an infection in his arm. The antibiotics were allegedly given too late to prevent the boy's death from the septic shock.
