The Case of Asphyxia caused by Choking Milk: The Possibility for the Nursing Stuff to Pay Attention on the Infants Anytime
An infant had hypoxia after nursing. The Hight Court judged that the serious injury of the infant wasn’t caused by the sudden cardiac death of the infant but the asphyxia caused by choking milk. Besides the nursing staff didn’t burp the infant, neither pay attention on it to discover immediately its asphyxia, and was negligent to the death. However, the High Court didn’t follow the strict method of the evidence concerning proving the causality of the serious injury of the infant. On the other hand, there was no argument made by the High Court about the possibility of act, the predictability and the possibility of eliminating risky result concerning judging the responsibility of negligence of the nursing staff, but the judgment that the nursing staff didn’t pay attention on the infant to discover immediately its asphyxia. This kind of argument might be worth to study. The presenting essay would be a comment as well as an analysis about this case comparing with the legal praxis and the theories.
