When we picked up my SO's son today (we have him over the next two days) he was coughing so violently that it was causing himself to vomit and he looked as if he had not slept in days. He is four and autistic so he cannot verbalize any discomfort. After giving him some cough syrup and getting little relief we called his mom to ask how long he has been coughing like this. She said about three days and she did not give him any medication or take him to the Dr. Well we took him to the ER where we found out that he has bronchitis that was lowering his oxygen level. He now has a nebulizer at home to open up his airway.
Is it neglect that she did not treat his sickness at all???

If your SO was vomiting and coughing violently, I'm sure she would have taken herself to the Doctor or at least would have taken medication. So yes, I think it was neglect or bad parenting.
