NHS: North Yorkshire Baby Death

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has admitted liability over the stillbirth of Abbie Horner in 2011.

High Risk

Deborah Horner’s pregnancy was considered high risk – at the time of her pregnancy, she was 43 years old. She was also known to have previously suffered a miscarriage.

However, the hospital trust has admitted to flaws in the care provided to Mrs Horner, despite her high risk status.

Mrs Horner commented:

“I want them to make a formal apology, it’s horrendous,
it’s a living nightmare, it never goes away,
it’s never going to get any better.”We just want to stop it happening to someone else.”

Hospital Investigation

An investigation into care failings at the hospital revealed that staff had misinterpreted a foetal heart trace, and that records were not kept accurately.

Julian Hartley, Chief Executive of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, commented:

“The events leading up to the loss of Abbie fell far short of the high standards
of care we normally provide and for this I am very sorry.”A full investigation led by a senior doctor was undertaken into the
failure to recognise and escalate concerns in the labour care.

“This report has been shared with Mr and Mrs Horner and I
can reassure them that we are committed to using this to
ensure we learn from every aspect of what happened.”

The midwife at the centre of the investigation was relieved of her duties. She was referred to the local supervisory authority midwifery officer, and has since retired.
