A Philadelphia jury has awarded $78.5 million to a local woman whose child suffers from cerebral palsy due to “faulty diagnostic procedures” at the hospital in which he was born. In 2008, the woman went to Pottstown Memorial Medical Center with pregnancy complications. Hospital staff waited 81 minutes to deliver her baby, but the suit contended if they had acted when she first arrived, the child would have been fine.  Chris Mondics, Philadelphia Inquirer  05/06/2012
