Riya Hirani Wiki – Riya Hirani Biography
Riya Hirani, A nine -year -old girl who suffered a fatal cardiac arrest on the day after being erroneously diagnosed in the middle of a streptococcus could have been saved, a coroner concluded. Riya Hirani, by Wetheral Drive in Stanmore, was discharged from the Northwick Park hospital in Harrow, on December 22, 2022 with a piece of paper and tips for using free sale analgesics, despite the pleas of her parents for her parents for An antibiotic course as the news of a mortal outbreak reached the headlines. She was taken to the Hospital of Northwest London by her mother and dad by the advice of NHS 111 due to concerns about a three -day fever, red throat and difficulty getting her words. But the officer of the House of Representatives (SHO) who evaluated it decided that “he was not very sick” and the discharge with a diagnosis of viral tonsillitis.
The next night, on December 23, Riya’s mother, Geeta, panicked when he saw the white cat at the back of her daughter’s throat and decided to return to the hospital. When they left, Riya’s father, Mukesh, thought he was drowning and patted her in the back. He collapsed and entered a cardiac arrest, suffering severe brain damage that ended his life at the Great Ormond Street hospital (GOSH) five days later, says My London. “Literally we were leaving and she stood up and said she couldn’t breathe. It was very fast. I don’t understand how it could happen so fast,” Hirani told St panoner’s court during an investigation into the death of her daughter on Thursday (14 of September). His parents remembered his delight after a 10 -year battle to conceive was successful with the IVF. “He was very active, he loved to sing and dance, and make arts and crafts. He was a brilliant and intelligent girl,” said Hirani. “She worshiped Lego. It would spend hours playing with her little sister, inventing characters with her lego.
He had a very mature understanding of the world.” Only after Riya’s death, Gosh’s doctors were able to confirm that he had been infected with group A Streptococcus, a bacterial infection that can be fatal in its most invasive form. His death occurred after an outbreak in early December 2022, with around 30 children who believe they died from the infection between September 19 and December 30, according to Data Ukhsa. It meant that hospitals staff throughout the United Kingdom, including Northwick Park, was alert to cases of infection among children. During the investigation, senior consultants of the Northwick Park and Gosh hospital questioned Riya’s attention after she presented symptoms of the infection at the hospital. A doctor who was the sho who evaluated Riya, explained that he looked five criteria when deciding if a child could need to enter Strep A, including a fever that lasts more than 24 hours, an absence of cough, cat in the tonsils, attending A hospital within three of three. Days of disease and severely inflamed tonsils.

Riya met two of the criteria to have had the fever and attended in three days, but the doctor told the court that he did not find crawling and his parents had informed him of cough when he took his recent medical history. However, the redness of Riya’s throat, linked to the inflammation of his tonsils, became a point of discussion when he was interrogated by the coroner Mary Hassell. Mrs. Hirani took the witness position and said that the doctor had told her that Riya’s throat was “very red”, which disagreed with his notes of patients who said it was simply “red.” The doctor denied that he referred to “severely red” when he spoke with Mrs. Hirani, but admitted: “Sometimes, when you write very quickly, you lose some words.” Later, he admitted that if he had seen the third warning signal, he may have raised the problem with a superior doctor to see more closely. The Forensic Hassell said: “Could it have been very red?” The doctor replied: “No, I was not very red. I usually write a positive finding very clearly.” He was also asked why he did not observe Riya’s neck.
He replied: “Maybe I forgot it, I don’t know. It is very common for nine -year -olds to appear with neck pain.” The doctor was interrogated by his failure to detect “difficulty in speaking” of Riya, despite the concerns raised by his parents. “I don’t remember that phrase,” he told the Court. “But they told me that his voice had changed, instead that I couldn’t speak, so I can remember.” “I was using all his breath to get his words, that was what was happening and explained to him,” said Mrs. Hirani while calling her to the witness box. “When I examined her, she had no difficulty breathing,” the doctor replied. In a number of tearful submissions, Ms Hirani repeatedly called the doctor’s professional judgement into question. “I know as a mother she was really sick as for nine years she had never been that sick,” she said. “I remember saying this could be Strep A, I can’t find a rash though. I left it for you medical professionals to find out.” Asked if he would do anything differently, the doctor said: “I would try to keep my notes as neat as I could and try to write everything. If I was worried about anything I would go to see my senior. I would try to check the blood pressure of the patient.” He added: “Sometimes we can’t predict the future.” Consultant in paediatric intensive care at GOSH Dr Quen Mok recalled how Riya arrived at the specialist children’s hospital in Camden after 11 minutes of no cardiac output and evidence of brain swelling.
Tests found Riya was Influenza B positive, but Dr Mok suspected there might be another issue. “Having done 30 years of paediatric care I had never seen a child with influenza be so sick,” she said. Riya was sedated and put on a ventilator to prevent further brain injury, but her brain continued to swell and her pupils began to dilate. Riya sadly died in hospital on December 28 with her medical cause of death given as 1A hypoxic ischemic brain injury, 1B out of hospital cardiac arrest, and 1C Strep A and Influenza infections. Asked if Riya would have survived if granted the course of antibiotics, Dr Mok said: “At least you would have felt it gave her a chance and treated her. I do not know if it would have prevented the cardiac arrest. I think if Dr Jadou had seen her he probably would have admitted Riya to the paediatric ward and started her on IV. And even if she had a cardiac arrest, it would have been in hospital where treatment is quicker.” Giving a narrative conclusion, Coroner Hassell said: “I’m satisfied from all the evidence at the point [Riya] was brought into hospital she was showing signs and symptoms of a bacterial infection and should have been treated as such. “She should have been admitted and treated with antibiotics. I’m not certain what the outcome would have been, but I am satisfied on the balance of probabilities, if Riya had been appropriately treated she would have survived.”
