2. Under “Status”, describe the following incident:
On 22 July of 2015 Jennifer Williamson, an expectant mother loses her baby when she was trying to deliver the infant at Guthrie Robert Parker Hospital in Pennsylvania. According to Jennifer, she puts the blame on Mark Underwood who was her Obstetrician and Cassi Lang who was her Neonatologist. She claims that there was a confusion between the two on if they are to perform Caesarean section surgery or not. The time taken to start the C-section exceeded the thirty-minute decision-making time because Mark and Cassi could not detect the fetal heart rate for the infant which is required before a C-section is started,hence the child died due to suffocation (Vincent et al. 777). Mark and Cassi had to play the devil’s advocate and take up the blame for the infant’s death which is not their fault.
