Lawsuit alleges negligence occurred during care of infant

It can be very harmful when medical professionals or medical facilities act negligently when providing care to an infant. No infant should have to be subjected to negligence at the hands of a medical professional or medical facility.

Recently, a medical malpractice case involving the above-mentioned type of negligence has arisen. The case is from Illinois. The case involves a girl who was born on Aug. 26, 2010.

The girl's parents allege that negligence occurred in connection to medical care the girl received after her birth. According to the girl's parents, included among the alleged negligent actions that occurred during this care was a negligent misplacement of an IV.

The girl's parents claim that the alleged negligence during the post-birth care of the girl caused the girl a variety of harms including: burns, infection, disfigurement, disability and pain.

A medical malpractice lawsuit has been brought by the girl's parents in a court in Illinois in connection to the above allegations. Two hospitals and five doctors have been named as defendants in this lawsuit. It has been reported that the girl's parents are asking for damages in this lawsuit.

Negligence like that alleged in this medical malpractice case can cause a great deal of harm to infants. Thus, one hopes that medical professionals and medical facilities are held accountable when they commit negligence like that alleged in this case. One also hopes that all medical professionals and medical facilities make sure to act properly when providing medical care to infant patients.
