A tribunal has heard that two midwives responsible for a sick woman's four-day-old baby left him in a stationery cupboard. Yvonne Musonda-Malata and Christine Onade are accused of failing to provide appropriate clinical care while working on a night shift at Queen's Hospital in Romford.
The alleged incident, which happened in April, 2011, was reported by a nursery nurse who found the baby alone in the cupboard. Alex Curtis told the tribunal:
"I went to the post-natal ward to get an envelope from the stationery cupboard and found a baby lying on its tummy on its own. The baby was in the cot just behind the door. I cannot remember whether the light was off or on, but I saw baby on its front and went to check if it was breathing."
