US Mum To Sue Hospital After Newborn Suffocates
12 August 2017, 04:20 | Todd Saunders
Monica Thompson, 42, claims nurses who worked at the Portland hospital put her three-day-old son in bed with her to be fed, even though she was still "groggy" from zolpidem and vicodin.
She cited negligence in causing "foreseeable harm" to her son Jacob Daniel Thompson and "negligent infliction of emotional distress" to her over the child's death on August 12, 2012. Around 3 a.m. the nurse -identified in the lawsuit as Nurse X- took the newborn to Thompson and put the baby next to her for breastfeeding, and "left the room and left the mother and son unattended". The lawsuit says the hospital gave Thompson "a combination of narcotic pain killers and sleep aids" at around midnight, and then brought Jacob back in three hours later so Thompson could breastfeed him.
Thompson claims that an hour later - "still drowsy and groggy" - she noticed her son was unresponsive in her arms.
"When no nurse came to help, Mrs. Thompson carried her son to the hallway and frantically yelled for help", according to the lawsuit. On Aug. 4, while still in the hospital, Thompson rolled over on Jacob, smothering him to death.
Jacob was not breathing, but the medical team was able to stabilize him and placed him on life support. The parents accepted the doctors' recommendation to terminate life support.
In a statement to CNN, Portland Adventist Medical Center said, "This was a tragic event and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the family. We are reviewing the claims being made and we are unable to provide any additional information at this time".
"Jacob was a true miracle baby", said Thompson in a statement.
Her lawsuit also alleges that doctors broke Jacob's ribs while performing CPR on him causing him "substantial pain". "My firstborn and only son". What happened to us could've easily been prevented had the nurses been doing their job'.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says babies should never share a bed with parents, and no pillows, sheets, blankets or other items should be in a baby's bed.
'I am Jacob's voice in making sure his life won't be in vain'.
She was medicated with Ambien and Vicoden following a caesarean birth on August 2, 2012, Oregon Live reports. "It has taken Monica and the family all this time to finally come to the conclusion that something went wrong, and they were not to blame".
In a 2016 report, the pediatric association noted that evidence shows skin-to-skin care (SSC) and "rooming-in" helps foster breast-feeding and mother-child bonding - but said the practices may also "pose safety concerns, particularly with regard to sleep".
"They are hoping this lawsuit gives them closure", says Conde.
