Meningitis Case Dismissed as Viral Infection Proves Fatal for Child

It can only be described as deeply tragic. The General Medical Council Fitness to Practice panel, of UK, has heard the accusations made against a doctor// who failed to notice meningitis in a child, and who consequentially died.

An infant of two years Wesley Hayward, slipped into a coma and died, just hours after being dismissed with a diagnosis of viral infection on 22 October 2003.

Diane Hayward, the child’s mother had brought him to his GP, Dr. Ramesh Chandra Gulati, when she noticed the high fever and complaints of body ache.

The doctor allegedly sent them home with painkillers As Wesley developed a rash that evening, NHS Direct advised Diane, to take the child to hospital.

He was taken to Doctor Payne of Royal Infirmary Manchester, who likewise diagnosed a viral infection.

The next day by afternoon, Diane brought the boy again to DR. Gulati who failed to note the rash or carry out tests for meningitis, even on Diane’s insistence.

By evening the boy had slipped into a coma. He died the following day.

Dr Gulati is charged with providing inadequate care, which fell below the standards expected of a competent doctor. If the allegations are proved, he will face disciplinary action, including a possible ban from practicing medicine.
