Coroner to recommend all nursery staff get paediatric first aid training

The BBC is reporting that a coroner is to recommend all nursery staff receive paediatric first aid training after a baby’s choking death…

The death of a baby who choked while eating her nursery lunch was an accident, an inquest has found.

Millie Thompson died in October 2012 after eating shepherd’s pie at Ramillies Hall School and Nursery in Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester.

An inquest jury concluded the nine-month-old baby’s death was misadventure and no-one was to blame.

The coroner is to recommend to the government that all nursery staff are trained in paediatric first aid.
