He and his team of experts dealt with the case of Brigette Campbell, who was a minor at Centinela Hospital. In the above case, after the successful delivery, she displayed signs of an abnormal heart rate, and the staff at the hospital did not do anything about the condition. This was the only mistake that made the hospital lose the case.
The Law Offices of Dr. Bruce G. Fagel & Associates, in the above case, proved that nurses could have done something to address the condition, like adjusting the position of the mother and giving her medications afterward. She was deprived of oxygen for a long period, and the fetal distress started to progress slowly. In fact, the nurses took an extra 35 minutes after the delivery of the baby to call the neonatologist to treat baby Brigette when her health began to worsen.
