    Is this case a misunderstanding, or criminal medical child abuse? We will have to wait and see.

    http://www.**************/1771966/w...putting-substance-in-chronically-ill-sons-iv/

    The grand jury heard the case, and the mom was indicted, charged with felonious assault and criminal child endangerment:

    The 9 year old child was born with Hirschprung's Disease (a serious, life long bowel condition). The mom has 4 children all together. She was held on $50K bond, and was expected to bond out this week.

    What struck me as a health care provider is that original stories said that they had caught the mom on video camera doing this. Security cameras are not routinely in patient rooms. Usually, if there are worries of medical child abuse, a court order has to be sought to surreptitiously videotape within the patient room, due to privacy reasons.

    There are rooms in larger Pediatric Hospitals that have cameras in them in case this is a concern. They only turn the cameras on if they think there may be a problem.
    If the mom thought the son's IV needed flushed with saline, call the nurse. I am an RN but I would never take it upon myself to add anything to my child's IV. I am there to be the mother, there are other nurses available.

    Ok-- this is no accident. She was trying to make this child SEPTIC. :gaah:

    So glad they caught her before he died or became even sicker, but the tradeoff is that she will probably get a light sentence, if convicted at all. She's out on bond, but can have no contact with the boy. Throw the book at her and then strip her of her parental rights, IMO. I'm starting to think we need a whole forum for these medical child abuse cases. Just so infuriating!!

    More details on this horrible case of medical child abuse. Sounds like they have pretty good evidence. Pity she is only facing 8 years, but I'm so glad the child is away from her and doing well. She should permanently lose custody and all contact with this vulnerable child, IMO. She has a total of 4 children.

    Well, it's even worse than what news articles are reporting about the fecal matter injected. Here is an interview with Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters, on the Bill Cunningham internet radio show. Begin listening at 16:20 and the discussion of Candy Fluty's actions and charges continues to about 27:40.

    http://www.700wlw.com/media/podcast...mom-keeps-son-sick-shooting-willies-25766146/

    What the prosecutor reveals:

    -She had long been suspected by children's hospital of Munchausen By Proxy. Previous admissions had many unexplained and strange events happen to the IV lines-- broken, etc.

    - They videotaped her child's admissions for a year

    - She is seen taking her son's colostomy bag into the bathroom with a syringe. She comes out and injects into the boy's IV line. He spikes a temp. She takes pictures and posts on facebook.

    - Somehow they did DNA testing of the contents of the bag, or the boy's blood (I'm fuzzy on what was tested), and tests revealed vaginal cells and tissue mixed with fecal material! Prosecutor Deters theorizes she urinated into the colostomy bag before withdrawing the "sample" she injected into her son.

    Assistant Prosecutor Ann Flanagan is prosecuting the case. Judge Metz (sp?) is the judge. Prosecutor is confident they will convict on all counts and she will receive an 8 year sentence.

    Candy Fluty remains free on $50K bond, no contact with this child, child is in custody of WV child services, and living with an aunt.

    Well, as K_Z said earlier, at least the boy is still alive, away from his mother now and he should improve. We all know where this would have gone if she hadn't been caught -- another sad and so unnecessary death for someone who had just started living. And who knows yet how much of his current condition may have been exacerbated by whatever she may have done to him. Maybe research on what she may have done might be a bit easier on this one since it appears that ~mom~ and her kids were not as transitory as L. Spears. Grrrrrr.

    What is wrong with people???

    Beginning to look up Candida "Candy" Fluty's criminal docket. DOB 7/6/1979

    Hamilton County, Ohio

    Case Number: /15/CRA/1321
    Common Pleas Case Number: B 1500301

    http://www.courtclerk.org/case_summary.asp?casenumber=/15/CRA/1321

    Click on tabs in red box to right in this screen for more info on docket, history, schedules, attorneys, etc.

    http://www.courtclerk.org/case_summary.asp?sec=doc&casenumber=/15/CRA/1321

    *Documents are all locked because of sensitivity to minor victim. This might be a difficult case to follow long term. Because the child is living, there may be little available online up until the trial or plea. Sadly, the same privacy that protects the living child, also shields the accused perpetrator in cases like these.

    That said, I have to wonder why the prosecutor was allowed/ able to give such a detailed interview about the evidence and investigation on the internet radio show?

    Next scheduled activity is March 10 with Judge Metz-- docket says plea or trial setting.

    Candy Fluty pleaded guilty to injecting her son's IV line with feces. She has received a sentence of 6 years in prison. She avoided an 8 year sentence, and had several charges dropped. Six years doesn't seem like enough time to me, but I'm glad she's behind bars. Her chronically ill son will be 15-16 when she gets out of prison, if she doesn't get parole. I doubt she will ever have custody of him, or her other kids ever again.
