Operation, Diagnostic, Or Treatment Procedure Rendered Causing The Injury
On April 23, 2002, the mother was presented to hospital and underwent an OB ultrasound that was interpreted by insured.He's impression was low biparietal diameter, which could just be related to the low position of the head in the pelvis.However the low abdominal cicumference may possibly indicate IUGR(intrauterine growth retardation) and clinical follow-up was suggested.The report was STAT faxed to the referring physician.The mother returned to the primary care center on 4/25/02 the ultrasound report was reviewed and a non-stress test was performed to evaluate the fetus for IUGR.The test indicated a nonreactive fetal heart rate pattern and the mother was emergently transported to hospital and underwent a low transverse C-section performed by co-defendant doctor.
