Plaintiff was pregnant with twins and found to be at risk for early labor. She went to the Emergency Room twice in her third trimester with complaints of contractions; the first time she was discharged, the second time she was admitted to the hospital for monitoring. Due to problems with the babies' heart rates, doctors made the decision to perform an emergency Cesarean section. Despite mounting problems and the rule that an emergency C-section should be performed in less than 30 minutes, doctors waited one hour and 40 minutes to perform the operation, causing oxygen deprivation to their brains and resulting in cerebral palsy in one twin and developmental delays in the other.
