Mum’s fury after nursery ‘let off’ with caution over toddler burned by bowl of hot water.

Published

A mum whose toddler suffered horrific burns after a bowl of hot water tipped over him at nursery says she is furious the nursery has been “let off” with a caution.

Reuben Adams suffered burns to the left hand side of his face, his left shoulder and behind his ear and needed intensive hospital treatment at Pinderfields General Hospital in Wakefield.

His mum Sarah Walker, 29, says her little boy has been left having night terrors, the report.

Sarah was left “distraught and in hysterics” after being told what had happened to her 18-month-old in a kitchenette at Bridge End House Nursery in Fixby, west Yorkshire, in August.

Kirklees Council said today it had completed its investigation into the incident.

In a statement it said: “The immediate cause of the incident was not closing the door to the kitchenette, but officers found it was not the only contributing factor to this incident.

“Underlying causes played a significant role including nursery policies, staff training, allocation of staffing and deviation from agreed company procedures.

“Bridge End House Nursery Fixby has co-operated fully with the council’s investigation and has made significant improvements to ensure this type of accident doesn’t happen again.”

But Sarah said: “I am absolutely not happy. I would like to see the nursery prosecuted or shut down. I will be looking at taking this further. Giving it a caution is not good enough.

“Reuben is still reliving this accident night after night and suffering ‘night terrors’.”

She said she hoped her petition calling for more stringent action to be taken against the nursery would be going ‘live’ soon and said her Facebook page on the issue had garnered almost 800 shares.

The report said: “On 28 September we carried out an unannounced visit and we identified significant health, hygiene and safety concerns.

“These concerns included a dirty and musty smelling milk kitchen. We found torn nappy changing mats, dirty toys, chairs, seat coverings, floors, changing tables and equipment in all areas, indoors and outdoors.

“We found children had access to wires, cables and a loose cable holder. We found that fresh milk was left out of the fridge on two occasions. A child had not been recorded in the attendance register. All of these issues significantly compromised the children’s health, safety and their welfare.

“Following our visit we served a welfare requirements notice on the provider.”

A second unannounced visit as recently as November 10 to discuss further what had happened to Reuben still found cause for concern.

The report continued: “We found a number of breaches that contributed to this incident. Staff/child ratios were not met and deployment of staff was poor in the baby room. Risk assessments were inadequate which resulted in a child opening a safety barrier, accessing a milk kitchen and reaching a bowl of hot water.

“No clear guidance was available on how to warm bottles safely. First aid was administered immediately, however, at one point, flannels were placed on a burn.

“We found there was a delay in contacting the emergency services and parents.”

Clr Naheed Mather, Cabinet lead for enforcement, said: “Whilst the council has issued a caution in this instance it does not detract from the seriousness of the incident.

“I would like to remind all premises how dangerous breaches of health and safety such as this can be.”

Nursery director Chris Stoker said: “The nursery recognise the impact that this accident has had on Reuben and his family and understand their thoughts and feelings as no child should ever have to experience an accident of this nature.

“Throughout the investigation into how this happened this has been at the forefront of our focus, ensuring that what Reuben went through can never happen to another child.”
