Baby Melanie went in for decompression and the doc did not do a follow up MRI right before or a vein check while in surgery he hit a vein and before he got it under control she passed with attempts at cpr she was brought back but not with any brain function....these docs really need to start paying for all of these things they are getting away with im not sure what we need to figure out but we need to figure something out

How could they not check for veins....I know my was as well as nerves were on what TCI calls Dopplar mapping this is done thru out surgery....
