Baby Girl Dies as Doctors Fight Over Delivery

Posted by Media Outrage on February 26, 2010

A baby girl died while doctors fought over who should deliver her.  Smh.

A newborn girl died after two doctors fought over who was going to deliver her while the mother was in labor, it has emerged.

The young mother begged the doctors to stop fighting and help her, she told a Brazilian television station.

But her pleas appear to have fallen on deaf ears. Her baby daughter suffocated to death, witnesses have said.

The two doctors were fired by the public hospital in the small city of Ivinhema near the border with Paraguay.

Brazilian authorities have launched an investigation over whether the delivery room fight caused the death or contributed to it.

Brazil’s Globo TV said witnesses reported one doctor got angry early Tuesday morning because the other doctor was summoned to deliver the baby for 32-year-old Gislaine de Matos Rodrigues even though he was not scheduled to be on duty.

Rodrigues, a seamstress, said she was terrified when the fight broke out.

‘I asked them to stop fighting and help me,’ she told Globo TV. ‘One of the nurses came to protect me and console me.’

A third doctor took over the delivery after hospital security guards removed the fighting doctors, Rodrigues said.

She said her baby girl was dead upon delivery.

Witnesses said the baby died of asphyxiation following complications, Globo TV reported.

One of the doctors admitted to Globo TV there was a fight in the delivery room, but blamed his colleague.

‘I didn’t get in a fight with him,’ said Dr. Sinomar Ricardo. ‘He got into a fight with me.’

The network said it was unable to interview the second doctor.

Police said they will investigate, and the regional body that oversees doctors in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul also launched a probe.

The two doctors were given 10 days to report their versions of what happened in the hospital’s delivery room.

The autopsy report on the baby’s death is expected to be released next week.

    Their childish behaviour resulted in the death of a child… ironic much?

    P.S. Do doctors get commissions everytime a birth is done, if so do they get a deduction for death also?

    “I didn’t get into a fight with him, he got into a fight me with”????? WTF, same difference.
    Are they doctors or school girls? Just deliver the baby and stop the arguing. I would say sue, but suing won’t bring that baby back. SMDH@ foolishness.

      Without sounding like i am a poster child for violence. They would die right there and film at 11.
      I would get up blood and all take a scalpel and gorge ones eyes out and slit the throat of the other. I would crack open the skull of both of them with whatever heavy object I could find and tell the judge in my grief and severe depression, I don’t remember anything other than holding my dead baby.

  6. That is sad! I would sue the hospital definately and those doctors should never be able to work again!

    Doctors have to pay out the arse for that insurance…for stupid mistakes like this.

    RIP to the family of the bereaved… 😦

    I am using the world’s best online TV viewing software. Spend a lot of time at the computer. For this reason than to watch tv on pc software is required. Thousands of HD channels, TV shows, series, movies and sports channels all in one software. I searched and really did a very good choice. Don’t pay cable television fees for one year. You still pay them at once and watch tv free from your computer. Once you get use to life.
