Plaintiff, Baby B., nearly one year old, was admitted to Defendant Doe hospital for surgical treatment of an esophageal stricture by Defendant Doe Gastroenterologist. Although it was not detected at the time, during the surgery, Doe Gastroenterologist tore Baby B.’s esophagues. After the surgery, while Baby B. was in the Day Surgery Recovery Area, and despite the involvement of other Doe Defendant Physicians, Baby B. began to exhibit detrimental effects the tear was having on his body, including decreased oxygenation and the development of pnemothorax. Eventually, Baby B. suffered a cardiac arrest. By the time the situation was stabilized, Baby B. had been deprived of so much oxygen that he was left permanently and severely brain damaged.
