The family of a York County child who died from cerebral palsy recently won their lawsuit against the hospital where their child was born. The lawsuit claimed that the York County hospital was negligent in reading a fetal heart rate monitor. The nurse who read the monitor was only a trainee at the time and misread the data coming from the monitor and missed that the baby was in distress while in her mother's womb. As a result, the York County baby was deprived of the oxygen she needed to properly develop her brain functions. The lawsuit argued that if the nurse had read the monitor correctly, the baby could have received the emergency medical treatment she needed to develop fully.
