Lawsuit Filed After Nurse Cuts off Baby’s Finger
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Mar 29, 2012 in Medical Malpractice
Veronica Olguin is suing Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center after a nurse severed her babys finger. In October 2011, Veronica Olguin took her then 3-month-old daughter Selena to the hospital for a fever that wouldnt break. The baby stayed in the hospital for two days. When Selena was released on the third day, a nurse had to remove the tape attached to her IV. While cutting the tape, the nurse cut off Selenas pinky causing blood to spray all over her and her mother. Selena was airlifted to another hospital, but doctors were unable to reattach her finger.
WTVTreports that the nurse involved in the incident is still employed at the hospital.
Veronica claims that she and Selena are still traumatized from the event.
