Hospital Sued for Medical Malpractice

A woman is suing a Hospital claiming she was the victim of medical malpractice three years ago at the hands of a nurse during child birth. The medical malpractice lawsuit alleges that the woman was given Pitocin, a drug used to induce or augment labor, without orders from a physician. The drug allegedly caused the victim to have rapid contractions that slowed the baby’s heart rate, prompting an emergency C-section. The medical malpractice claim states that the hospital is responsible for the woman’s permanent injuries and damages, pain and suffering, disability, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. She looks for damages as well as compensation for past and future medical expenses related to the medical error. To learn more about the birthing error, please click the link.
