Judge warns child's brain damage could have been avoided

Hydrocephalus could have been avoided in a baby because a public nurse failed to record the mother's concerns, to properly record the head circumference at 46.5cm and to have the child recalled in a few weeks for a further examination.

The failures, the judge said, were "materially causative" of the baby’s present condition in that if appropriate action had been taken by the nurse, the baby would not have suffered significant neurological damage.

Damages in the case will be decided after a further hearing.
