The Worlds Crappiest Mother Award Goes to This Woman In Indiana

Submitted by: richanddead 4 days ago News & Politics

Tiffany Alberts, a mother in Indiana, is now facing seven felony charges after court documents say she used a syringe to inject feces into her son

The investigation began on Nov. 17 at Riley Hospital for Children when officers were called in to assist a child abuse investigation. A 15-year-old boy there was being treated for Leukemia yet the boy continued to have explainable infections that delayed treatment.

Back in September, the boy received his first round of chemotherapy for his leukemia and went home. But, he then returned a few days later and was sick with fever, vomiting and diarrhea. Doctors said he had high fevers and vomiting since that day with significant bouts of diarrhea.

Blood tests were ordered and doctors found that the child had positive blood cultures for organisms that are normally found in human feces, and experts agreed that there was no medical reason to explain the ongoing blood infection. Suspecting that someone may be contaminating the patient's IV lines, hospital staff began monitoring the teenager's room with video surveillance, and observed the mother injecting a substance into the boys central line.


When Tiffany Alberts was taken to the Child Abuse Office she claimed that she was only putting water in the line to "flush it as the medicine that was given to him burned." Yet after some interrogating she later admired that she kept a stocked supply of her son's own fecal matter, which she kept in a gift bag on the bathroom sink of his room, and would inject this routinely directly into her sons veins. Investigators also found diarrheal medication and weight loss pills in Alberts’ personal items.

After months of severe hospitalization and some surgeries, to keep the boy alive, Doctors have said that the child’s health improved only after Alberts was removed from the hospital room. But, they say the biggest concern now is they may have missed their best window to keep the boy’s leukemia in remission and the boy himself alive.

Tiffany Alberts is now being charged with six counts of aggravated battery and one count of neglect of a dependent, resulting in serious bodily injury.

Sounds like Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome and is a mental anomaly if true she needs help, besides being kept away from her kid.

Seems like she was trying to make her son sicker than he already was in order  make him pass  quicker. I have seen this many times while working in MH rehab. For example you have an Extremely obese  Downs syndrome young adult who's parents feed the person almost constantly to hopefully give them fatal heart attacks.

The dark humor of choosing the word "crappiest" to describe the mom who injects fecal matter into her son's bloodstream was outstanding, richanddead.  Well played, sir.

Munchhausen by proxy, most likely.

She craved the attention from her child's illness... But she had to keep him sick to get it.

It's what I was thinking as well. If true, I am unconvinced that criminal proceedings and prison is the best course of action.
But then, as with wives that kill hubbies - even after years of documented physical abuse, and mothers that harm their kids, will be viewed by the public, and by the courts, more harshly than men. IMHO.

madduck I don't want to make it sound like I'm an expert... If I was I probably would have spelled it right. 

We may find out more information later that ends up being even more messed up, somehow...

"The mother claimed her actions were meant to get her son moved from the ICU to another Riley unit, where she believed "the treatment was better.""

solid fucking logic right there.
