No matter the reason, the mother took a horrible chance with the girl's life by unhooking the catheter. If there wasn't a trained nurse waiting in the car with the missing plates, then the mother's only defense is ignorance of the danger of infection at the catheter site. That's a pretty poor defense for risking a kid's life.
