Hospital negligence – Medical Malpractice
An infant was born in good health, with an uneventful delivery and a near perfect Apgar score, which measures a newborn’s health. The next evening, while in the hospital’s well-baby nursery, he was found face down, not breathing. He was resuscitated, but had already suffered brain damage. A hospital nurse had left the infant in the bassinet on his stomach, unmonitored.
