    Default *Trigger warning* NSW Health Minister called to resign after hospital scandal

    Money won't bring back the baby but I'm sure during this tragedy they may have taken time off work and the emotional stress and depression that will surely come for the family , the money may at least help pay for medical bills and expenses they have had to pay for now and in the future

    Compensation won't do anything to "fix" it, but it may provide the family with financial security which would benefit other children.

    Ultimately it's their prerogative. The family of that little boy who died at Disney have chosen not to seek compensation for their loss.

    I think seeking compensation is often about much more than just receiving money.

    It's about acknowledgement of their loss, taking a stand against an act of injustice and bringing awareness to an atrocity that they don't want to see another family go through.

    Saw this just before online

    What a joke?

    A parent can never recover from the death of a child my own folks have never gotten over my big brothers death when he was a teenager and this was 30yrs ago

    No amount of money can repair the damage that a family will endure

    But to read this article it's truly a joke

    I just can't get my head around this story.

    I've had two children. DH does medical gas fitting as his job so when we went to our first viewing of hospital he installed the gas's! When I saw this I couldn't believe such a mistake had been made.

    Please do not blame one person. Even if BOC connected xyz I'm assuming checks etc would of had to be done. So it's a collective error. As redcreamingsoda said, you can't complain etc in this day and age. You will get fired etc.

    Also I would like to add I fear for the many more errors with medical funding cut from hospitals etc but this family must be going through hell.
