Didn't supervisor nurse midwife's assessment closely enough

My grandson was born with undiagnosed hydrocephalus. This is unheard-of these days. As a result, he was allowed to go full term and also forced to endure 13 hours of pitocin labor before he showed enough stress to be taken by emergency c/section. He has cerebral palsy, he is blind, he is developmentally delayed. He is 8 years old, wears diapers, cannot walk and can do little other than hold his juice cup. He is a joy to us but his life is truly sad in that he will never have anywhere near a normal life because of the lack of oversight of nurse midwives in this group. There is no excuse for this not to have been picked up early and for my grandson to have been spared the physical and mental impairments that he will live with the rest of his life.
