12 year old boy dies from massive infection 4 days after doctors send him home from NYU Medical Center
The boy cut his leg playing basketball, it became badly infected later on the same day, he developed a soaring temperature and severe pain, but his own family doctor said she wasn't concerned but maybe he should just go the ER. The ER doctor said she didn't think it was serious and gave him Tylenol[!] for the pain, and sent him home. After 2 days he was turning blue. Septic shock.

This story is so sad and incredibly bizarre. How these two doctors didn't realize he had a massive infection spreading into his blood, when his vitals and appearance clearly made this obvious, is beyond strange.

Actually, something like this happened to my cousin. The hospital sent him home and told him to put a bandaid on it.

He was life flighted that night as his heart start failing. Flesh eating bacteria is nothing to be messed with.

People assume that doctors are gods and know everything. The truth is that they are idiots like the rest of us.

Fuck, this is the most important survival skill, wound care. You want to end up dead, listen to a doctor.

People are creating super bugs that cannot be killed by antibotics by not finishing their round of antibotics and using anti-bacterial soap. The virus and bacteria are adapting to them.

It's scary stuff!

Poor kid.
