After giving beginning, it’s frequent apply for brand new moms to recuperate and have their child taken care of in a confinement centre or rent a confinement woman. Nonetheless, tragedy struck for this unlucky mom, when her child was by chance dropped down a flight of stairs by the confinement woman, leading to his mind getting blood clots!
Earlier this yr in January, the mom (who shall be recognized as Ng inside the article for privateness functions) employed a nanny to handle her child for 2 extra months following her launch from the confinement centre, in order that she might concentrate on recuperating totally. In line with Oriental Every day, the confinement centre from the place she employed the nanny, is a unique one from the place she went to after giving beginning.
Because the length of the nanny’s providers overlapped with the Chinese language New 12 months season, the price of hiring the nanny for 2 months was increased than traditional, amounting to RM14,300. That’s loopy costly, we all know. Nonetheless, Ng had religion within the SS2-based confinement centre, which marketed its dependable and reliable nannies, who additionally had two branches already.
Regardless of the spectacular accolades, Ng rapidly found that the primary nanny despatched by the confinement centre didn’t stay as much as her expectations, despite the fact that the centre acknowledged she had over 10 years of expertise. Unhappy, Ng rapidly requested for the confinement centre to offer a brand new nanny.
At first, all appeared nicely because the alternative is 50-something years previous, placing her at over 10 years youthful than her predecessor. She additionally gave the impression to be extra diligent in taking care of her son, and cooked Ng good meals besides! Sadly, issues would quickly take a tragic flip.
On the morning of February 1, the nanny instructed bringing Ng’s son downstairs, in order that she might get extra relaxation. Nonetheless, as she was coming all the way down to the decrease flooring, the nanny misplaced her stability, inflicting her and the child to fall down the steps! Ng rushed out after listening to the commotion and was instantly shocked to see blood splatters in all places.
Immediately, Ng observed the nanny was bleeding profusely from her head. Therefore, she took her to a clinic to cease the bleeding, earlier than taking her to a hospital to get stitches. As for her child, he had not made a sound because the fall occurred, subsequently Ng initially didn’t suspect something amiss. After some time, nevertheless, she observed bruises throughout his head, and instantly rushed him to Columbia Asia Hospital. The physician later mentioned that the explanation her son had not made a sound earlier was as a result of he had fainted!
After present process a CT scan, the complete extent of her son’s accidents got here to gentle. He had blood clots in his mind and damaged bones in two locations. Whereas surgical procedure was really useful at first, the physician determined that given the age of the toddler, it could be higher to place him on medicine first. Ng mentioned,
“The blood clots at present don’t present any indicators of dissolving by themselves, so we’ll want to watch him intently and preserve tabs on the event of his mind within the days to come back.”
As if this wasn’t already distressing sufficient for a brand new mom to listen to, Ng later discovered by the wounded nanny, that she truly suffers from hypertension, and had knee surgical procedure prior to now which could have triggered the nanny to slide and fall.
It’s understood that the confinement centre had identified the nanny was unfit for obligation, particularly since Ng lives in a double-storey home. But, they’d assigned her to Ng anyway. Ng has since lodged a grievance to the centre, however in addition to workers from the centre paying a go to to her home to test on her and the child, she claims the centre has not taken additional motion. She has additionally requested for compensation or a refund from the centre, solely to have her pleas fall on deaf ears.
Oriental Every day states that they’ve contacted the confinement centre for a remark. Employees from the centre have responded saying that the person-in-charge is at present in Singapore, subsequently he/she is unable to subject a proper assertion in the interim.
It seems that that is an accident which clearly might have been prevented if the centre had screened their nannies extra rigorously! We will’t even think about what the mom goes by proper now, however we hope and pray that her toddler son will have the ability to recuperate.
