A two-and-a-half-year-old boy nicknamed Xiaoxiang died Wednesday after over two hours' treatment in the People's Hospital of Wanning city, Hainan Province. His parents found the name labeled on the intravenous drip bottle for the boy's treatment was not the name of their son. The bottle has been sent to the Drug Control Institute of Hainan Province for further examination of its contents, according to a report of hinews.cn, a local news website in the province.
Xiaoxiang's mother, surnamed Ding, said, she and her husband found their son feeling uneasy on February 9, and rushed him to the hospital. The nurse did not check the label on the intravenous drip bottle before injecting the fluid, said Ding. After taking the first drip bottle of medicine, Xiaoxiang cried loudly as his belly visibly swelled up and body turned black. However, she could no longer find the doctor and the nurse who carried out her son's treatment.
She said another doctor tried first-aid measures on her son but after a two-hour treatment, the boy died.
A staff of the hospital, surnamed Liu, said that Xiaoxiang had been injected with pure glucose without any medicine in it. The drip bottle was actually returned by another patient in a fully sealed condition, and the medical worker did not remove the label of the previous patient and tag Xiaoxiang's name on it. But Xiaoxiang's parents tore off the label with the boy's name, she said.
The case is under investigation.
