The maternity unit at Basildon University Hospital has been rated as Inadequate by the CQC following “failings” of six serious cases of babies born in poor conditions across two months. Stephanie Prior, head of Clinical Negligence at Osbornes told BBC Look East these should not be happening routinely.
Similar concerns were raised last year following the death of mother, Gabriela Pintilie, who lost six litres of blood after giving birth to her daughter via cesarean section at Basildon University Hospital in February 2019. The Romanian born mother bled to death several hours after doctors conducted emergency surgery and serious delays followed, along with a failure to deliver the right further care.
Stephanie, Clinical Negligence lawyer, who acted for Gabriela’s husband, Ionel Pintilie last year told BBC News “We [Osbornes] have had a lot of cases, and still are having a lot of cases where mothers are having stillborn children.”
