While most hospital and birth injuries result in harm to the body, sometimes negligent practice can result in emotional scars. Kentucky residents may be interested in a case in New York that drastically illustrates the need for sensitivity in the delivery room, especially in cases of still birth.
When a New York City woman went into labor in her 20th week of pregnancy, she immediately headed to Harlem Hospital in an ambulance. The baby was born before paramedics arrived, and died en route. While neither she nor her husband implicated the hospital any way for the premature baby's death, what allegedly followed created wounds in their hearts that they are unlikely to heal from soon.
