Department of Health to Investigate Children's Hospital for Child Injury

A medical procedure that left a child with severe brain injuries has led to the state Department of Health to open an investigation of Seattle Children's Hospital, claims a spokesman.

During an angioplasty procedure on Feb. 5, a blood vessel near 2-year-old Osman Ali's heart tore open and caused Osman to lose much of his brain function, including the ability to see, speak, and walk.  Doctors do not expect the boy to recover.

The boy's father, Nasir Ali, filed an inquiry to the Health Department regarding an investigation but never heard back.  The case gained steam recently when Nasir came forward after reading about a news conference in which Seattle Children's hospital disclosed information regarding other cases involving injuries to children.

Recently, the Ali family was informed in a letter from the state's Medical Quality Assurance Commission that a formal investigation had been launched regarding Osman's procedure.  The hospital has declined to comment on Osman's case.
