New York hospitals are expected to provide a certain standard of care when patients are admitted for medical treatment. Unfortunately, many hospitals are understaffed, which can lead to a wide number of issues. Right now, three families are going head-to-head with a hospital after mistakes were allegedly made in the delivery room due to apparent negligence and understaffing, with one of the cases resulting in permanent brain injury to an infant.
Any soon-to-be parents in New York know that a healthy baby is the best gift any parent can ask for. And while parents can do everything in their power to ensure that their baby is taken care of before it is born, the birth of the baby is dependant on the medical team assisting the mother.
