According to a lawsuit filed by the parents, the baby became stuck during labor and the doctor began pulling.

    It’s like something out of some sick comedy sketch. Except with actual human suffering.

      Officials with Southern Regional Medical Center issued a statement saying that “this unfortunate infant death occurred in utero prior to the delivery and decapitation,” and said that the doctor who delivered the baby, Tracy St. Julian is not “and never has been” an employee of the hospital.

      I wish it was.

        it’s common for doctors in private practice to have privileges at local hospitals to practice, see patients, perform procedures, surgeries, etc.

        part of that doctor’s service fee is paid to the hospital for this privilege.

        I love that they are going with the “it’s not the OB’s fault and even if it were, they don’t work for us.” That guide is actually worse than if they just denied it was their fault. What they admitted is that they admitted a woman who was in labor and did not assign a doctor to her but instead let a random woman help deliver and decapitate the baby. That is a systemic issue and clearly the people managing the hospital should be named from operating any hospital ever again.
