Tragic Hospital Mistake Kills Infant
A 7 month old child who was going through open heart surgery died from multi-system organ failure after his body was flushed with alcohol instead of a water and saline solution.
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has admitted fault for the tragic death and is conducting an internal investigation in order to determine how the mistake happened. Tressel Meinardi's family has declined to comment, but sources say that they have been understanding and forgiving, despite being grief stricken.
The hospital has not reported any other details concerning the case. The Hamilton County Coroner's Office is also conducting an investigation, even though they did not initially because they thought the death was from normal surgical complications.
