Mother Sues Hospital For Making Huge Mistake

Davante and Delante Hogue of Upper Fruitland, New Mexico are twins born prematurely at only 29 weeks. They spent most of their first year at an Albuquerque Neonatal Intensive Car Unit (NICU) at the UNM Hospital. Delante was released before Davante.

Davante had to go through surgery for a stage-2 brain bleed, which doctors told Erica and her husband could leave him unable to talk, walk, see or hear. Yet, just when they thought nothing more could happen, a nurse's reported mistake has the mother seeking legal action against UNM.

According to KFOR, the nurse was removing an IV from Davante's foot. She was cutting around the tape when she accidentally cut his toe off.

An orthopedic surgeon was unable to reattach the toe because circulation could not be reestablished. As a result, Davante has another complication to add to his list. The hospital apologized and said they would use a different tape next time.

Erica told KOB4, “For me, that is just not enough. I believe that my baby is worth so much more than that." In addition, her insurance may be charged to reattach the toe that should not have been cut in the first place.
