When Rachel Dawber’s infant son was struggling to breathe, eat, relieve himself, and was having seizures, she rushed him to the hospital. After being sent home, his condition not improving, she took him to another hospital where doctors diagnosed him with anemia, a condition where a lack of iron in the body leads to a reduction in the number of red blood cells—and potential brain damage. “My baby’s organs started shutting down because they got things so wrong,” Rachel says of the misdiagnosis. Doctors won’t be able to tell if her son suffered brain damage until he has fully recovered, but Rachel maintains that doctors should have been able to diagnose his condition immediately, given low iron levels in his blood tests.
