CInammon Brow mum thanks hospital staff for saving daughter's life
2:00pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
A CINNAMON Brow mum has nominated everyone that was involved in saving her daughter’s life for Warrington Hospital’s team of the month award.
Ten-year-old Mia Loudon, who has an extremely rare genetic disorder called CDKL5, has been a regular on the children’s ward at the Lovely Lane hospital since she was 10 weeks old.
The youngster’s mum Paula nominated the children’s ward, anesthetists, theatre and resus team and the north west specialist paediatric transport team for their work in June battling to save Mia’s life.
Paula’s nomination said: “On that day Mia had become very poorly very quickly and thankfully because of the close monitoring of Mia in B11 (children’s ward) they felt the best choice of action was to make the anesthetists, the resus team and transport team aware of Mia and her deteriorating condition.
“The team came down to see Mia to assess her condition and within an hour the ward staff felt Mia was deteriorating so much that the anesthetists and resus team were needed.
“They came in and in no time took over and whisked Mia to theatre to intubate her.”
Paula said the team in the theatre were like a ‘well-oiled machine’ and kept Mia’s family in the loop before they were taken to an ambulance and safely transferred to Alder Hey intensive care.
She added: “At one point as I sat there in Warrington completely helpless with my daughter’s life in the hands of people I had never even met before, I counted 22 people all milling around Mia each one doing their jobs calmly and proficiently.
“I truly believe everyone involved in Mia’s care that day contributed to saving her life and I will be forever grateful.
“I wish I could thank them all personally.”
Jane Scott, matron for the children’s ward added: “We are very touched by Paula’s nomination and are delighted that Mia is now back home and making a good recovery.”
