Abstract

Recent government guidelines have prevented doctors from hiding behind a wall of silence when a child dies after hospital treatment. But Priscilla Alderson and Margaret Stacey believe there are still lessons to be learned which can help parents grieve properly For many years professional and legal advice to doctors has encouraged a culture of defensiveness. Yet for parents who have experienced the death of a child in hospital where medical mistakes seem to have been made, the failure to receive a satisfactory explanation of what happened often deepens the pain of bereavement.
