A nursery in Bournemouth has paid out £4,300 in compensation to the mother of a two-year-old boy, after he tipped his teacher’s cup of tea over himself.

The hot drink had been left to stand for 20 minutes and was considered unlikely to have caused serious harm. As a result, the nursery’s ambulance call was not prioritised by the service.

Instead, it was discovered that the damage was so severe, that skin was peeling away from the boy’s arm.

His mother was then left outraged when she discovered that staff at the nursery had responded to the incident incorrectly. Rather than running his burns under cold water; they had decided to wrap them in fluffy blanket.

It was this treatment that led paramedics to urge his mother to take action against the nursery.

The two yearlong case was settled this month in Bournemouth and Poole County Court, where it was agreed that the nursery was to pay the family £4,300 in compensation.
