Nearly $26 million was awarded for future medical care for the now 8 year-old boy, born December 11, 2000 at the hospital. He suffered “permanent, irreversible brain damage,” during his birth, according to the complaint filed by his family in 2006. The boy’s mother had previously had a Caesarian section, meaning she was at a higher risk for a ruptured uterus during labor, which actually occurred. The boy went 18 to 20 minutes without oxygen as a result.

The hospital staff erred by failing to monitor the labor properly, by failing to diagnosis the hyper-stimulation of her uterus, by inappropriately using the drug Pitocin and by not telling the attending physician of her “inappropriate contraction pattern.
