An investigation has been launched after newborn twins died following an apparent mistake involving a drug at a scandal-hit NHS hospital.
The baby boys died 11 days ago at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust.
They had been transferred from Stafford Hospital, which is run by the separate Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.
Bosses there told The Guardian newspaper a report into the incident concluded it involved "wrong rate of infusion".
The trust said a member of staff had been suspended following the deaths.
It is impossible to say whether it has got anything to do with systemic problems at the trust or whether it is a tragic one-off
Chief executive Antony Sumara added: "We have commissioned a full external investigation into the events while the twins were at our hospital.
"This is under way and is being led by an independent paediatric doctor.
"At present we have suspended one member of staff."
A spokeswoman for the hospital would not comment on the exact circumstances surrounding the boys' deaths.
Campaigners had fought a lengthy battle for a public inquiry into Stafford Hospital
Stafford Hospital is at the centre of a public inquiry into substandard care and practices that led to hundreds of deaths.
There is no suggestion the latest tragedy is linked to previous failings at the hospital.
Peter Walsh, chief executive of patient safety charity Action Against Medical Accidents, said of the babies' deaths: "It is impossible to say whether it has got anything to do with systemic problems at the trust or whether it is a tragic one-off."
The public inquiry into care provided by Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust between 2005 and 2009 was opened in Stafford on Monday.
Chaired by Robert Francis QC, it follows an earlier independent investigation which disclosed a catalogue of failings at the trust, which also runs Cannock Chase Hospital.
