"Eventually they said 'we've got a bottle teat, I'll put the bottle teat in there and you just stand there and hold it'," she recalled before they proceeded to attach it to the child's tummy with sticky tape.
The distraught mum says when she went to change her baby's nappy, it was filled with blood. When she started taking photos to document what was happening, she was told by a nurse that "it was just a virus."
"I was so verbally hostile that they had to get another matron on the shift… they were trying to cover something," she said.
Eventually, she was told she had to drive her sick son to Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Brisbane herself. "We had no choice in making the decision to drive. We were told that it's not life threatening."
"As long as you are breathing you're fine in that hospital. If you take a turn for the worst, you have no way of surviving. None."
When she reached the Brisbane hospital with her baby she says he received immediate care and she was put at ease.
"Compared to Lismore Base this was more than a five-star hotel, it was a resort and it was a hospital," she said.
She says she now tells her friends and family not to go to Lismore Base and to drive straight to Brisbane. "Your kids are in a lot of danger if you go to that place."
The mum is now in the process of suing the hospital, including documenting her other experiences during her pregnancy with her son.
