a doctor would ask.
The Medical Complaints Tribunal investigated the death of a two year old boy after his parents allege he was misdiagnosed with a virus. He did of pneumococcal sepsis because the paediatrician allegedly failed to carry out tests to determine if he had a bacterial infection. The doctor admitted he had made a mistake and was guilty of professional misconduct. The doctor has since retired and a recommendation was made that he be reprimanded and reassessed if he tried to re-register as a doctor.
