The handover on return to ward is they found a gangrenous perforated appendix with peritonitis. Mark has returned to the ward with a nasogastric tube insitu on free drainage, morphine PCA, IV therapy and triple IV antibiotics.
Due to the severity of the infection and the subsequent complications, Mark will need to remain in hospital for 10 days of IV antibiotics and pain management.
Mark is the oldest of five children and his parents own and run an Indian restaurant in the city.

Jayda is a four-month old girl admitted to the paediatric unit via emergency with vomiting, decreased feeds no bowel actions and intermittent spasmodic abdominal pains. During the spasmodic pain episodes, Jayda would draw her legs up and have a high pitched cry.
After a diagnostic ultrasound, intussusception was the cause of the presenting symptoms and Jayda was admitted to the ward. Her treatment plan included observation, electrolyte monitoring and IV therapy and antibiotics until a contrast enema could be implemented to correct the intussusception.
The approximate length of stay for Jayda will be 10 days, during which time, Jayda’s mother is informed that the rotavirus vaccine that Jayda had at 4 months has increased the incidence of this condition amongst infants. Jayda’s mother is now having serious doubts regarding future vaccines for Jayda.
