Glasgow Hospital Found Guilty in Child Birth Negligence Case

TJ Samson Community Hospital

Following a week-long trial, a Barren County jury took just over an hour to find T. J. Samson Hospital guilty of negligence Tuesday night.

The hospital was ordered to pay $18.3 million to the family of a baby born with severe brain injuries at the hospital in 2011. The doctor handling the birth of Tristan Hamilton was cleared of all charges.

The Glasgow Daily Times reports the baby was born with a form of cerebral palsy as well as other health issues.

The jurors agreed T. J. Samason failed in its duty to properly care for Tristan and his mother Brittney Hamilton.
