There’s a word for that kind of thing

for Blogging Against Disablism Day thanks to Diary of a Goldfish!

There’s a word for that kind of thing

when a newborn is treated as another pending, tragic statistic because her genetic diagnosis arrives before she does

when hospital staff take it upon themselves to issue a DNR for an infant “with problems” admitted to their care shortly before

when lethal doses of medication go mysteriously missing from a diagnosed infant’s medication cabinet, along with the usually meticulously kept medication reports, shortly before that infant dies

when all a hospital can do is issue an apology for “errors in communication”

when a coroner’s office is unwilling to fulfill its duty to release crucial medical information to family members in the suspicious death of an infant, or to answer basic questions about the case

when we sit by

in memory of Annie Farlow
