Jadell Doe was born without complication. He was discharged with inappropriate follow-up instructions provided to his parents by the defendants. Thereafter, Jadell Doe’s parents noticed lethargy and yellowing of their son’s eyes. They brought him immediately to the emergency department of the defendant hospital where he presented with excessive bilirubin levels. Due to an improper delay in treatment, Jadell Doe suffered extreme and prolonged hyperbilirubinemia causing irreversible and catastrophic brain damage due to kernicterus. The plaintiffs settled without the defendants for a global sum of $11.5 million.
