I need to find statitical data collected on osteomyelitis. i am trying to take my local nhs to court for negiligence, my claims are that my daughter who had chronic osteomyelitis was not given the recomended antibiotic treatment, she was given oral antibiotics and never given any iv antibiotics. it is well doccumented in her hospital notes that my daughter was unable to swallow any solids whatso ever, she was on food suppliment drinks for 12 months prior to her getting osteomyelitis and continued with this problem during her two treatment for osteomylitis. i feel that the doctor should have taken into account the fact that my daughter was unable to take oral antibiotics as she vomited them back up, i have been trying to take this matter to court for 8 years and keep getting knocked back each time on trivial discrepancies,as it stands now the court accept that iv antibiotics would have been the prefered choice, but they also claim that my daughter had a 75%-90% chance having her leg amputation no matter what route antibiotics were given iv or oral. i do not accept this fact, as i suggest that if my daughter had been given iv antibiotics her chances of saving her leg would have increased. i need urgently to find any data statistics etc in the uk to see what the chance my daughter might have had in saving her leg if she was given ivantibiotics.
