Concerning Trend: Family holidays become hospital stays in Greece

A family’s holiday in Rhodes, Greece turned into a nightmare when both children and the husband were hospitalised due to suspected food poisoning. Melissa Pickering, 30, from Oldham, had to spend around £1,000 on medical bills and emergency flights back home after her husband, Bradley, and their two young boys, Harry (7) and Billy (5), fell severely ill during their stay at Labranda Blue Bay Resort.

Melissa, an auxiliary nurse, booked the holiday as a pre-surgery getaway but soon found herself dealing with her sons’ symptoms, including lethargy, dehydration, and vomiting.

Both boys were admitted to the hospital for two nights, with doctors confirming food poisoning. The Pickering family incurred significant expenses during their holiday ordeal. Melissa confirmed that they spent nearly £1,000 on medical bills, medication, and emergency flights back home. Additionally, they had to pay £700 for flights back home due to the children’s fear and illness.

A concerning trend in food poisoning

A year prior, a family experienced a concerning trend of food poisoning while on holiday. It began when the husband fell severely ill with sickness and digestive issues after consuming strange-tasting fish. This persisted for several days, impacting his ability to eat and forcing him to remain bedridden.

By the fourth day, both children also fell ill, experiencing vomiting and high fevers. Concerned, the family sought medical advice from Jet2 representatives and obtained medication from a pharmacy to alleviate symptoms. The illness resulted in the family avoiding restaurant food for the remainder of their holiday, highlighting the serious impact of food poisoning on their vacation experience.

Additionally, the family’s experience echoes broader concerns about general cleanliness at the resort. Trip Advisor reviews have highlighted these potential issues for holidaymakers, raising further questions about hygiene standards.
