Nursery e.coli outbreak leaves boy blind and deaf
Family call for answers as son left seriously ill
A MUM today revealed how her young son was still seriously ill after an e.coli outbreak at a North-east nursery.
The parent – who has not left her son’s hospital bedside at Glasgow’s Yorkhill Hospital in nearly four months – detailed the devastating effect the infection had on her son.
Her 22-month-old child was one of four youngsters and three adults to contract the bacterial infection at the Rose Lodge Nursery School in Aboyne in May.
The parent, who did not wish to be identified, said her child has lost his sight and much of his hearing, suffered kidney failure and needed sections of his bowel removed.
She said she did not feel the official report into the incident had gone far enough.
A spokeswoman for Rose Lodge Nursery School today said: “We have co-operated fully with the investigation.”
