School’s Mistake Claims Student’s Life

As per a coroner’s report, it has been revealed that a 13-year-old student would not have lost his life, if his school teachers would have paid attention to his medical condition. Nathan Francis was on the cadet trip being organized by his school named as Scotch College.

He ate an army ration pack of beef satay and suffered from severe peanut allergy. Doctors said that Nathan would have not have died, if his camp teachers would have given a look to his medical summaries.

It was also revealed in the court that teachers in the camp were not comfortable in using an Epi-pen and did not pay any attention to his allergies. It has been revealed that the school has apologized Francis parents. They have been found to reach at a confidential settlement with the school as well as with the Defence Force, which supplied the ration packs.

Coroner Audrey Jamieson said that Nathan was not alone who has suffered peanut allergy. There were two others as well who have suffered mild peanut allergies. It is not that school authorities were not informed by Nathan’s mother about his allergy, but they forget to consider it while providing meals.
