  • The facility failed to administer a Rhogam injection to patient’s who are Rh negative. If the blood from Rh-positive baby enters the mother’s Rh-negative bloodstream, there will be a blood type mismatch. This is called Rh-incompatibility. Her immune system sees the baby’s red blood cells as “foreign” and will produce antibodies that try to eliminate them. RhoGAM, IF given to her at the right time, will prevent her immune system from reacting to the baby’s blood. The clinic failed to administer this necessary medication to the patients.
