after 'lack of care' during ambulance ride
A newborn baby was diagnosed with a brain injury after suffering a lack of oxygen during an ambulance ride, an investigation has found.
On Monday, the deputy Health and Disability Commissioner (HDC) released details of a case which they said showed the need for better communication and coordination of care between midwifes and ambulance services.
The incident took place in 2019 when a woman gave birth to her son in an unplanned home birth.
