Coroner to deliver findings on baby who died in the QMC

today29 June 2022

Background

A coroner will deliver his conclusion next week after hearing evidence into the final days of life of a baby girl who was thought by medics to be suffering from a tummy bug. Gordon Clow, assistant coroner for Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire, will present his findings on Wednesday, July 6, to the family, their lawyers and other legal parties interested in the case.

His decision will be based on statements and live evidence heard over a day-and-a-half at Nottingham Council House where the inquest into Indie Winnie Moloney’s tragic death began on Tuesday, June 28. She was seven months old when she passed away at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre on July 23, 2021, after being unwell for days.

Her parents, Sally Checkley and Kyle Moloney, of Eastwood, had sought advice from medics after Indie had woken up screaming, was sick, whinging, and had blood in two nappies, but it was suspected by doctors she saw that she had a tummy virus and was sent home.

A doctor, who was the last to examine Indie two days before she took a turn for the worse, works for NEMS, which provides out-of-hours emergency services to people in Nottinghamshire, and has a walk-in patient service at the QMC.

At the time he said his notes were that Indie was “well and alert”, a happy child and she smiled. She was not clinically dehydrated, totally settled and fully pain-free throughout his consultation.

Examining Indie’s abdomen, he said it was nice and soft and there was no pain, distention, swelling or masses he could see. Mrs Checkley brought her daughter’s nappy to show him, which contained blood and mucus, but the doctor recalled, “I didn’t seem too alarmed about this at the time”, and added, there were no blood clots or black stool.

He said he thought she had gastroenteritis. But the inquest heard Indie developed a relatively common condition called Intussusception, only found at post mortem – where parts of her colon had slid into each other. It is a treatable condition, if found, and uncommon for a baby to die from.

Scans would probably have picked up a dilated colon and prompted further investigation. Surgical examination would have flagged what was the cause – but would have been dependant on the clinical condition of the child. No scans or stool samples were taken from Indie before death.

Symptoms of Intussusception were “non-specific”, the inquest has heard, and can come and go in severity and even in existance. The doctor (the last to examine Indie) went on the say that the probability of her having Intussusception was still lower than her having gastroenteritis, which is 200 to 300 times more than than Intussusception.
