article imageBaby Kaylee Needs A Bed At Toronto's Sick Children's Hospital

Little Kaylee Vitelli is in the news again. The miracle baby needs a bed at Sick Kids Hospital but there aren't any according to the children's hospital in Toronto.
Kaylee Vitelli needs a bed at Sick Kid's Hospital but because there is a shortage of beds she is being treated at Southlake Regional Health Center where she was admitted on May 20.
Kaylee's name is fairly well known in Ontario. The three-month-old infant made headlines when she survived after being taken off life support last month. She suffers from Joubert Syndrone. The condition makes it impossible for her to live without a machine breathing for her.
In April it was decided that the infant to be taken off life support knowing that would prove fatal to become a heart donor. She surprised her parents, doctors and the world by taking a breath and refusing to die.
On May 20 she developed a fever after getting an infection. At first antibiotics worked but then her infection reoccurred and her fever spiked to 38.5 C on Sunday.
At that point her pediatrician requested the infant to be transferred to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. There were and at this time still are no beds to accommodate the infant.
Her father, Jason Wallace, is looking for ways to pressure Southlake Hospital to have his daughter taken to Sick Kids regardless if there are any beds. Wallace has been very vocal about his feelings about Sick Kids Hospital. After she left the hospital last month he spoke out about the care she received.
