The case involves a five year old child who developed flu-like symptoms. He presented to the hospital with fever, dehydration, and lethargy. The child’s parents were originally concerned with the frequency of the child’s vomiting so they brought the child be seen in the ED. After a short hospital stay the patient was diagnosed with a viral illness and sent home with supportive care. However, due to continued vomiting the child’s parents took the patient back to the ED the next day, however she was discharged a second time shortly after arrival. The child was brought to the ER a third time, where he was tachycardic and hypoxic. The patient was transferred to PICU where the patient eventually expired. Blood cultures obtained prior to initiation of antibiotics were positive for a bacterial infection that went undiagnosed during his hospital stay.
