The medical staff failed to adequately monitor the baby. Despite recurrent tachysystole, or contractions occurring too frequently, the doctors and nurses continued to give mom Pitocin, a drug that increases the strength and frequency of contractions. The medical staff failed to follow their own policies and procedures regarding the administration of Pitocin by failing to discontinue the drug in the face of tachysystole when the EFHM strip was readable and also when the strip was unreadable for extended periods of time throughout the labor and delivery.
