Chandler, AZ – Couple speaks out about one of their twin, premature daughters being dropped by the doctor just moments after she was born. The incident occurred on Valentine’s Day of this year at Chandler Regional Medical Center. The video was just recently posted to Facebook earlier this week.
The parents (Derrick & Monique Rogers) are concerned about any long-term effects this incident may have on their daughter. The dad said he confronted the doctor about the situation because he was actually the one who recorded the incident.
“I told him, ‘you dropped to my baby,’” Derrick Rodgers said. “He had like a nonchalant look on his face. Then I showed him the video and he had nothing to say after that.”
The baby seems to be fine, but an ultrasound was performed a week later and it was revealed Morgan had “a grade 1 germinal matrix small bleed.”
Basically, a small hemorrhage. They’re hopeful their daughter will grow up healthy and happy. They also want the hospital to apologize and for their staff to be more careful and learn from this mistake.
Take a look at the video below, but please be advised the images may be too graphic for some of our viewers to watch. What would you do and how would you feel if this was your child? Would you file a lawsuit against the doctor/hospital? Would you just chalk it up as a mistake and let it go? Comment below, let’s talk about it.
