And another cold night on the web but temperatures recovering by the


weekend. An independent report has identified


"serious failings" in the care given to a baby from Kettering


who suffered serious harm Rocky Uzzell and Katherine Prigmore,


were both jailed last year, for inflicting catastrophic injuries


on their five week old daughter. Rocky Uzzell and Katherine Prigmore


were seen to laugh at the hospital where by the week old is a


bull's-eye in a critical condition. Katherine Prigmore filmed her


partner violently shaking and squeezing their daughter. This case


highlights major failings of Kettering Hospital. Baby Isabelle


was admitted here 6 times in 5 weeks yet not once did staff even consider


that her parents could be to blame for her injuries. They mist to rib


fractures. Had they recognised them they could have taken steps to have


her removed from her parents to a more serious injury. The moral


series warning signs were missed time and time again. On March 16,


2014, Isabelle was admitted with leg pain.


The next day, the parents were arrested. What is of particular


importance is the repeat presentation to hospital over a very


short period of time, that should bring an immediate child protection


flag and top diction concern that would need to be checked. It appears


that didn't happen. The couple lived in this maisonette. Shocked


neighbours say they really saw them. Couldn't believe it. I knew


something wasn't right because I only saw the mad with a pushchair


once, nobody ever saw the baby. Isabel will soon turn 3. Unable to


walk, talk, C and swallow, she is with foster parents and isn't


expected to live until her teens. Kettering Hospital said there was


profound regret over the missed opportunities to safeguard her and


said it has introduced improvements to procedure to protect infants at


risk. Well the head of the


Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Board said the case of baby


Isabelle was one of I asked Keith Makin how


it was allowed to happen. Primarily, 2 things. There was not


sufficient information sharing between agencies, although I have to


stress that itself wouldn't have necessarily lead to this awful


outcome. More particularly, we are very concerned that the people at


the accident and emergency acidity were not curious enough about


whether the reasons for admission was safeguarding or not. They were


not curious about whether abuse may have taken place. 1 thing that


stands out on the report is that an x-ray was done on the child's chest


and broken ribs were missed, how easy is it to miss broken ribs? I'm


top of the medical experts at actually, it's quite hard to tell in


small babies with a rib has been broken or not -- I am told by the


medical experts. But the issue as I understand it from the report is


that the x-rays were not examined by a paediatric radiologist. If the


examination had taken place as it should have been, it is very likely


the child would not have been released from hospital, very likely


wouldn't have gone back to the parents and this awful outcome would


very likely that of happened. What are you recommending to stop it


happening again? There is a different arrangement now for


examination of x-rays in babies and young children. And the sharing of


information, particularly about fathers, has been reinforced so that


is all backed by training programme for all relevant staff. We as a


board are monitoring and ordering the impact of that. Are you 100%


sure that if a baby was brought hospital today and it was being


abused by its parents that it would be picked up and acted upon? Not


ever 100% guarantees in safeguarding but what we are assured of is that


the Rossettini I have thought about would be enacted, questions will be


asked in safeguarding would be considered as a primary issue.
