22-month-old Boy Undergoing Emergency Intubation 1歲10個月大男童顱骨骨折 被保母送醫診治

A one year and ten month old boy in Fengyuan, Taichung was sent to the hospital by his nanny due to skull fracture and various other wounds on April 24. The parents appeared accusing the nanny for abuse. The Social Bureau found after investigation that this nanny is not registered or certified by the city thus had violated the laws and will be fined. The police has intervened in handling the matter.


A one year and ten-month-old boy is receiving endotracheal intubation in a hospital. Many bruises can be seen on his back. The parents of the boy from Taichung Fengyuan appeared on April 27 to publicly accuse the nanny of abuse. The boy's mother said they had been kept in the dark about the boy's situation, and the nanny did not notify them until after she sent the boy to Fengyuan Hospital on the 24th. The hospital diagnosed that the boy suffered from various wounds, subdural hemorrhage, and skull fracture, and thus proceeded with an emergency operation immediately.

Boy's Mother: “When I arrived at the hospital, didi was already in emergency care. Upon entering I heard them repeating OHCA and said he needs intubation because he cannot breathe.”

The boy's father said that by a friend's referral, he sent his boy to the nanny's house for childcare in February. In the past two months, he noticed that the boy often came back with wounds, but the nanny always responded with either the boy fell down or some other reason. Now that the boy is severely injured, the nanny claims to the social worker that the bruises on his back result from burping the boy when he was choking on milk, but the parents absolutely cannot accept such an excuse.

Boy's Father: “When we shower him we would see and ask. But the nanny always said it's because our kid is naughty and runs around so he'd fall or hit something. So we figured maybe it's normal when kids play around but totally did not expect this.”

The Social Bureau of Taichung City notes that because this nanny did not register with the city government for childcare or obtained an at-home childcare service certificate, she is deemed in violation of the Children and Youth Welfare act and can be fined up to NT$30,000. If child abuse is confirmed, she can be fined up to NT$600,000.

Huang Shu-na, Chief, Children and Youth Welfare Section, Social Bureau, Taichung: “With respect to this boy's abuse or improper treatment case, if after investigation it is confirmed to be true, then the person may be fined up to NT$600,000.”

The nanny has been under interrogation by the prosecutor at the Taichung District Office. As for the other 3 children under the nanny's childcare, the Taichung City Government has assisted the parents with transfer to other childcare services.

 

 

 

1歲10個月大的男童背後多處瘀青,躺在醫院裡面插管急救。台中豐原這名男童的父母27日出面指控保母施虐,男童母親表示,保母24日晚間將孩子送往豐原醫院就醫才告知他們,院方診斷男童身上有多處損傷、創傷性硬腦膜下出血與顱骨骨折,緊急開刀治療。

男童母親說:「我到院的時候,弟弟是在急診室裡面急救,我一進去就是聽到他們一直喊OHCA,然後還說要插管沒辦法呼吸了。」

男童父親說,今年2月因為朋友介紹將兒子送往保母家托育,2個月以來孩子身上常有傷勢,但保母總以小孩跌倒等理由回覆,如今男童身受重傷,保母對社工辯稱背部瘀青是小孩噎奶拍背所致,家屬完全不能接受。

男童父親表示:「回來洗澡的時候都會看,對啊,我們都會問,保母都會說是小朋友愛玩,自己跑來跑去會撞到會跌倒什麼的,我們就想說因為小孩子也愛玩嘛,怎知道會變這樣。」

台中市社會局表示,這名保母未向市府登記收托、取得居家式托育服務登記證書,已確定違反兒少法,最重可裁罰3萬元;若虐待情事經調查屬實,最重可再罰60萬元。

台中市社會局兒少福利科股長黃舒那提到:「針對這個男童兒童虐待或是不當對待事件,如果我們調查屬實的話,後續會進入裁罰的部分,最重可以處新台幣60萬元。」

男童目前仍在加護病房治療,尚未脫離險境。台中地檢署檢察官已指揮偵辦,目前仍在訊問保母中。至於這名保母還有收托另外3名孩子,台中市府已協助家屬轉介。
