Session Date Approaches in One Year Old Baby Hayley’s Death Case

Session Date Approaches in One Year Old Baby Hayley’s Death CaseThe date of court’s next session in Baby Hayley Fullerton’s death case is approaching. Hayley was born in Northern Ireland on 6 October 2008 with a hole in her heart. Doctors ran a surgery over her at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast weeks later but she was again flown to Birmingham Children's Hospital to get a corrective heart surgery done on 14 October.

Fortunately the surgery was a success and soon Hayley was shifted to the hospital's Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and then to a normal ward.

But unfortunately, the baby died in 2009. Her mother, Ms. Paula Stevenson has accused staff at ward 11 and the professionals at Birmingham Children's Hospital for ignoring her baby’s health concerns and neglecting the baby after her open-heart surgery.

Death of Baby Hayley Fullerton, 13 months, was followed by an inquest, which was adjourned until September this year.

In last session of hearing at Birmingham Coroner's Court, Coroner for Birmingham and Solihull Mr. Aidan Cotter cleared his plans to visit wards 11 and 12 of the hospital where Baby Hayley was admitted after her surgery.

The visits will be made before the inquest resumes on 12 September to hear more evidences in the case.
