The young mother was told that her daughter had hand, foot-and-mouth disease and sent home that night with medicine.
Clarke took her daughter back to the hospital at around 6 pm The following day after Dolcie-Rae showed no sign of improvement.
“We were essentially A & E outside of the X-ray because she was contagious,” she said. “Dolcie had not drunk anything or eaten all day. She had no wet diapers and they did not seem to worry.”
