Cas du mois pour les sages-femmes

Un nourrisson met un pansement (contenant des antibiotiques) dans sa bouche/le cas a été signalé en anglais

Que s’est-il passé ?

Baby had a nail infection and his paediatrician prescribed an antibiotic cream and put plaster over the finger. Mum was told to reapply the cream once a day and to put a new plaster on the finger. One evening she saw baby making strange movements, like she wants to vomit, she looked into her baby’s mouth and saw the plaster far back in baby’s mouth. She managed to remove it and baby was OK.

Actions immédiates mises en place

Mum did not reapply the plaster on her baby’s finger again.

I told mum to let her paediatrician know so it does not happen again to another baby. If baby has a wound on her hand, which needs to be covered, it might be better to use a gauze and wrap the whole hand including the wrist so it does not come off easily.
