Protect Our Children!

      Christopher Maxim

      Brooklyn, CT

My son was born 17 weeks premature and survived for 4 months and 1 week in perfect health before being transferred to a childrens hospital where because of the lackadaisical care given by this hospital that did not require its staff to wear masks, gloves and aprons my child contracted Pneumonia, Influenza and 2 viruses that ultimately led to his death at the age of 6 months. If these so called professionals had taken the time to do the simplest task and protect my son from their germs he would still be alive today. This law that I am trying to get passed in my state hopefully will spread to other states making it mandatory for every hospital staff member to wear gloves and masks before entering any patients room!

      I am so sorry that this happened to this father and his son. Nosocomial infections are the leading cause of death after people leave hospitals. What are they waiting for? At the very least masks and gloves should be used in all neonatal and or ICUs in every hospital in this country!!!

      We lost our beloved Christopher because of complications from Hodgins Lymphoma.(age 23 )

      All because someone did not follow proto call he,developed a serious staff infection. He was in I.C.U. for 35 days. In the end he lost the battle. That was 9 years ago and I still cry for him everyday. He should be living a full life but someone's error changed that,

      I fully support this. My mother contracted a fatal staph infection while in the hospital and later died from it while still in ICU. We believe that this was caused by hospital staff not washing their hands and going patient to patient in a hurry.
