Medical Negligence Claim Case Study

Child F was born with an injury to her brain as a result of a failure by hospital staff to correctly monitor her heart rate using a CTG trace.

The hospital staff accidentally monitored the mother’s (normal) heart rate and failed to act upon clear signs of fetal distress following the administration of medication (known as Syntocinon) which is used to accelerate labour.

A delay in performing an emergency Caesarean Section resulted in a hypoxic brain injury to Child F.

She now suffers from significant cognitive disabilities and poor speech.  Child F has problems with her vision and significant walking difficulties.  The case against the NHS Hospital Trust is continuing.
