Failure To Recognize Neonatal Hypoglycemia

Walkup attorneys obtained a mediated settlement of $2.25 million on behalf of a male infant who now suffers from blindness, developmental delay and cognitive deficits, and who also had his pancreas removed after nursing staff failed to follow proper protocols when the infant showed signs of hypoglycemia.

An MRI revealed evidence of posterior cerebral artery infarction, consistent with the diagnosis of severe hypoglycemia. Ultimately, nearly all of the infant’s pancreas had to be removed. As a result of his cerebral injury, he was left blind, with developmental delay and cognitive deficiencies.
