Hi. I'm having difficulty trying to decide what to do about the hospital where I had 4 of my 6 kids.
Basically my last son now 5 months old was incorrectly shown on the paperwork his birth weight. When in delivery suite George was weighed and my husband was stood by the midwife weighing him and she told us he was 2.80kg. We asked for it to be converted to lb and oz and she said she's have to look at the chart so she came back with 7lb 3oz.We were ok with this weight as I had the gestational diabetes and was started off a week early due to that and my other health probs. On the 3rd day at home midwife came and weighed George and told us he'd lost a whole lb so sent us back to hospital for tests. He was slightly dehydrated so we had to top his fluids up using a little cup with breast milk. It was so serious that it could have made him lose so much weight. After 2 days we were discharged. I was looking at the paperwork from the hospital and noticed his recorded birth weight was wrote down as 3.127kg.
What would you do in this situation? Any advice please? Thanks in advance :)
