A South Carolina jury has awarded $4.4 million to the parents of a 4-year-old girl who died after suffering brain injury at birth at Piedmont Medical Center.
The jury found that the hospital was at fault in 2003 when it assigned a nurse trainee to monitor expectant mother Robin Wilson, who had arrived at the hospital three days before her scheduled induction, complaining of nausea and vomiting.
Lawyers for Wilson argued the nurse trainee misread fetal heart monitoring information showing the baby was in dire distress. The information showed the baby needed emergency intervention.
The girl, Sierra Wilson, was born 2003, with a severe brain injury caused by oxygen deprivation. She died of complications from cerebral palsy more than four years later.
The girl took medication to battle seizures, underwent therapy several times a week and relied on a feeding tube to keep her nourished.
