Someone I know was on bed rest when she was 26weeks n she was in the hospital for 2months. So one night the nurse turned off the machine where they show the contractions. Then they had to take her baby out and she was dead can she sue the hospital for that????

Wouldn't that be an issue for the someone that you know, plus her lawyers?

Without the full facts of any case, it's impossible to comment otherwise. Sadly, babies are sometimes born dead when they are premature, especially as early as that. Even the ones that survive birth don't necessarily survive or they may do so with a host of permanent medical and cognitive difficulties. This doesn't have to be indicative of any negligence on the part of the medical staff.
