Case Analysis
Facts
The fact to the case pits out that Raglin was a member of HMOI by the virtue of her
employment contract. Consequently, she receives medical services from HMOI with Pronger-
Smith Medical Associated being the providers of medical care to her. In 1985, she had a
pregnancy that was reported to the facility with the doctors recording in her medical history and
affirming she has diabetes in her family history (Smith, 2019). Consequently, she was at a risk of
being diabetic in the course of the pregnancy and such could have led to the birth of a larger than
normal baby. Such later came to be realized when she indeed delivered a baby was larger than
normal. Owing to the bigger size of the baby, during the delivery process, the shoulder of the
baby was lodged at the birth canal owing to a condition known as shoulder dystocia forcing the
medics to resort to application of pressure and use of forceps in the delivery process (Smith,
2019). Consequently, there was a physical damage to the child in his brachial plexus nerve
leading to paralysis of the child. Owing to the failure of the doctors to monitor the blood pressure
of Raglin, which would informed the, if she was indeed diabetic and further enables the doctors
to make informed decision on the size of the baby, Raglin filed for institutional negligence by
HMOI (Smith, 2019).

2018).
