Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba Biography Hadiza Bawa-Garba Wiki
The mother Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba of a six-year-old boy who died of sepsis told yesterday of her anger when the doctor who overlooked his symptoms was allowed to go back to work without restrictions.
This is truly excellent news. But a little boy still died, and a family still grieves. A hospital trust, the system and the GMC all scapegoated Hadiza for those harms. It was, and remains, shockingly wrong. https://t.co/ws9YRI5Ydi

Hadiza Bawa-Garba Age
Dr. Hadiza Bawa-Garba, 43, was given a suspended sentence for manslaughter of Jack Adcock after a court heard that she had made a “catalog” of mistakes.
The pediatrician was later fired – only to spark a backlash from doctors who argued she was being scapegoated for a hospital in chaos. She was allowed to return to work last November under a number of restrictions.
But yesterday a medical tribunal ruled that she no longer had to work under supervision as she was now “above expectations of her educational level”. The decision was welcomed by medical groups who said Jack’s death in 2011 was due to “system-wide failure.”
Jack’s parents, Nicky, 47, and Victor, 55, slammed the move, saying the mother of four should never have treated 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 ever happened. She killed my son.
“We have to live with it until we die.
“How does she sleep at night? She got a second chance – we don’t. ”
The teaching assistant at Glen Parva, Leicester, added: “She has never shown any remorse for what she has done. It’s just so wrong.
“The whole system is corrupt – there is no end. I really don’t know how she sleeps at night. ”
Jack, who had Down syndrome and heart disease, was admitted to the Leicester Royal Infirmary on February 18, 2011 with difficulty breathing and vomiting.
He died 11 hours later of cardiac arrest from sepsis caused 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, diagnosis is notoriously difficult.
Dr. Bawa-Garba initially diagnosed him with gastroenteritis and did not respond to blood tests that showed he had a kidney infection.
She played the roles of three doctors and supervised six wards because the hospital was so scarce. A computer glitch also meant she was given the blood test results over the phone.
In 2015 she was sentenced to two years suspended prison sentence for gross negligence for manslaughter. After yesterday’s hearing, Dr. Bawa-Garba said she was “pleased” with the latest decision, but that Jack’s death had “lasting and profound” effects.
The Daily Mail’s End of Sepsis Scandal has called for better training to help medical professionals identify the symptoms of the leading cause of preventable death in the UK.
