The medical personnel at the defendant hospital allowed the mom and baby to struggle through labor for approximately 48 hours, which should have never happened. Due to non-reassuring fetal heart tracings and the overuse of Pitocin and Cytotec, which are both contraction-inducing drugs, the doctors should have called a C-section several hours earlier. Although the baby was not progressing sufficiently down the birth canal, the medical personnel continued to misuse these dangerous drugs. Due to the lack of blood flow during labor, the baby was deprived of oxygen and therefore suffered permanent brain damage.
