S.C. Jury Awards $4.4 Million in Birth Injury
A York County, S.C. jury has awarded $4.4 million to the parents of a child who suffered a brain injury during a birth at Piedmont Hospital.
The jury concluded the hospital was at fault for signing a nurse trainee to monitor the mother, Robin Wilson, who arrived three days before her scheduled induction with nausea and vomiting. The nurse misread fetal heart monitoring data, which showed the baby was in distress and needed emergency intervention, the plaintiffs alleged.
