Baby is severely oxygen deprived during birth and suffers permanent brain damage as a result of physicians misusing Pitocin and failing to quickly deliver the baby, despite non-reassuring fetal heart tones.

A baby suffers severe oxygen deprivation and brain damage when multiple standards of care are violated, including improper use of Pitocin, failure to properly react to non-reassuring heart tones, failure to quickly deliver a baby in distress, and failure to elicit the assistance of an experienced (attending) physician when fetal distress is persistent.
