Going to the hospital to give birth should be a joyous occasion. But for soon-to-be parents, an injury caused by the medical staff responsible for the safety of the infant can change the course of their lives.
In a recent medical malpractice case handled by Scott Mullins, the hospital failed to recognize and react quickly to a premature infant’s oxygen desaturation and the development of a tension pneumothorax. Neonatologists were negligent in failing to transfer the infant to a hospital with a level 3 NICU in the first few hours of his life where he could be effectively cared for and properly monitored. Due to this medical negligence, the child suffers from cerebral palsy, epilepsy, impaired cognitive function, quadriplegia, a feeding disorder and vision loss.
