Manchester attack: Saffie-Rose Roussos 'could have survived with better first aid'

Updated: Jan 28


The independent report into the injuries sustained and subsequent assessment and management of Saffie-Rose was reported on BBC news by Judith Moritz. (Jan.2021)

The independent report into the injuries sustained and subsequent assessment and management of Saffie-Rose was reported on BBC news (Jan.2021)

The independent report highlights failures in the initial phase of care to assess life threatening haemorrhage (Leg) and as a result failure to manage the haemorrhage.

Should these shortfalls prove to be founded then is there a case to re-examine our current trauma education for all levels of responders?

We are all aware that the skills we use the least are the first to fade, therefore constant reinforcement (Booster educational sessions) are essential. Put life threatening in front of that and the case for regular education and assessment to retain mastery of skills is self-evident.

Nothing I can add is more powerful than listening to the parents of Saffie-Rose, it is heart breaking and a very difficult read but listen we must.
