Obstetricians And Nurses Who Did Not Resuscitate Gasping Baby Settle For $900,000
Mother gave birth at a medical center to a baby that had been previously (wrongly) diagnosed as dead. At birth, the baby was in fact alive and was gasping, but the nurses put it on a table in anticipation of the baby dying. After 20 minutes, the baby was still very much alive and a pediatrician was finally called. Testing indicated that child had suffered severe injuries before birth and would have been brain damaged to some extent regardless of the care provided, but well-respected experts retained by Martin & Jones established that the delay in treatment worsened the pre-existing brain damage. The case settled for $900,000.
