Staff put liquid in fridge and it was mistakenly served as Kool-Aid!

When I read stories like this...I get mad. What is going on here?
This is totally outrageous! When people have a license to care for children...they should be more competent than this!


Hospital officials say a staffer mistakenly put the blue liquid in the refrigerator after shopping and later served it thinking it was Kool-Aid. Doctors estimate the children, ages 2 to 7, drank about an ounce of the fluid.

Only one child remained hospitalized Friday morning after blood samples showed "measurable levels" of methanol, a highly toxic alcohol that can induce comas and cause blindness, officials said.

That's horrible. What kind of an idiot mistakes windshield washer fluid for Kool Aid? Really? I hope the kids all come out of it alright and the daycare worker immediately fired.

Well said! I know...makes me really wonder if the person (article does not say male or female) was on drugs or something? That story strikes fear into my heart for children everywhere!

And yes...I sincerely hope the kids are all well, and not damaged permantly.

Yeah it makes me mad a bit, but I'm thinking, it really depends what kind of person this is. It could be the most perfect child care person ever, who has passion for her job, and never makes mistakes. All it takes is one big mistake and everyone thinks shes a dumb evil (snip).

You gotta admit, (snip) happens. People make mistakes.

If she's a (snip) and makes mistakes all the time, then yeah, she is pathetic.

This begs the question...Who can not read a label?

How in the world could Windsheild Wiper Fluid be mistaken for Kool-Aid?

What...they mistook it to say "Blueberry" ????

There is something wrong here...really wrong!

Why does it not surprise me this happened here in Arkansas?

Honestly - it didn't surprise me one bit.

Poor kids.

So sad for all the childrens sake...

Each of us has a choice in how we live...what we do...our priorities.
Children need adults, and they need adults that have their heads on straight.
