The family afterwards called on a legislature to retreat that decision.
The NMC has now reliable to BBC Radio Foyle that it is aiming to interpretation a examination as fast as possible.
Hyponatraemia is an abnormally low turn of sodium in blood and can start when fluids are given incorrectly.
Raychel was 9 when she died during a Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children in Jun 2001, a day after an appendix operation during Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry.
Four other children – Adam Strain, Claire Roberts, Lucy Crawford and Conor Mitchell – all died during a Royal between 1995 and 2003.
The Hyponatraemia Inquiry found 4 out of a 5 deaths it investigated were preventable.
The ban news was heavily vicious of a “self-regulating and unmonitored” health service.
‘Treated so badly’
A NMC orator said: “We were done wakeful of failings in caring around hyponatraemia by nurses during a Western Health and Social Care Trust.
“We delicately examined those concerns and motionless that we did not need to take any serve action.
“After serve communication with one of a families influenced by a failings, we have motionless to demeanour again during a preference to safeguard that it is sufficient to keep people safe.”
The orator pronounced that a legislature recognises it is “a formidable time for a family”.
“We will interpretation this examination as fast as probable to extent a impact on them and those influenced by a concerns.”
Marie Ferguson told BBC Radio Foyle: “The hyponatraemia exploration unprotected a levels a health use in Northern Ireland went to to cover adult a deaths of children.
“I don’t hear any politicians job on whistleblowers to come brazen and to go open – we’ve had to do all secretly ourselves.
“We had a petition sealed by thousands of people job for a doing of Raychel’s Law and a avocation of candour.
“Without domestic assistance and support it’s going nowhere.
“My summary to a politicians would be: How would they feel if it was their usually daughter or son attacked from them and afterwards to be lied to and treated so badly?”
Northern Ireland has been but a functioning executive given Jan 2017 and Mrs Ferguson said: “Politicians need to get behind to Stormont to stop a likes of trusts ruling themselves and to exercise a many changes required.”
She combined that she is tired after “fighting for 17 years”.
Des Doherty, a barrister for a Ferguson family, said: “The NMC has now motionless that they are going to recur their preference not to take any serve movement opposite a nurses concerned in a diagnosis of Raychel Ferguson after submissions by a Ferguson family.
“Our clients have concluded with a NMC that those submissions and association with a NMC shall sojourn trusted for a time being and that position will be honoured, tentative a uninformed preference by a NMC.”
Mr Doherty pronounced that a element that has now come to light “is also a theme of inspection by a Hyponatraemia Inquiry in sequence to establish intensity relevance, if any, to a issues still underneath care by a exploration with regards to a whistleblowing investigation”.
In May 2018, a BBC suggested that 24 of a doctors criticised by a open exploration had referred themselves to a General Medical Council (GMC).
In Jun 2018, a Department of Health determined a series of work streams to exercise a recommendations of a open inquiry, such as substantiating a avocation of fairness and an eccentric medical examiner.
