Baby on the mend
A month-old baby accidentally given methadone is still recovering in hospital.
The baby was admitted to the Hawke's Bay Hospital's intensive care unit (ICU) last Tuesday, after reportedly being given methadone by mistake at a Hawke's Bay community pharmacy.
A Hawke’s Bay District Health Board spokesperson said the baby is still in a stable condition in the Special Care Baby Unit at the hospital.
It is expected to make a full recovery.
