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

    A doctor can have practice rights at a hospital but not work for the hospital. So the OBGYN can deliver babies and do C-sections and such but isn’t an employee of the hospital.

      And that’s enough for the hospital to think they’re not responsible for what they do in their building?

        No they are just trying to draw a definitive line between the two entities. Doctors private practice vs the hospital. Probably for legal reasons but mostly for PR reasons. You know so they can argue that there was nothing to indicate Dr. Bebe Decapitator would decapitate a baby prior to actually doing so and that the doctor was very much a really real doctor that knew medical stuff so please don’t make us pay lotses of money for the doctor doing a naughty.

        It’s a way to make it sound like it wasn’t their fault for hiring bad doctors

          Doctors can have the right to practice medicine in multiple hospitals. That does not make those doctors employees.

            Bullshit. I don’t care what the legal definition of employee is, who authorized the doctor to work there? That’s right, the hospital did. If the hospital doesn’t want their reputation tied to shitty doctors, then don’t let shitty doctors into your hospital.
