CHICAGO — A mother whose newborn baby died after birth is suing University of Chicago Medicine and others, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence.

Sharita Harrison, individually and as special administrator of the estate of her daughter, filed a complaint on March 9 in Cook County Circuit Court against Dr. Iris Romero and University of Chicago Medical Center, alleging they failed to provide proper medical care to her daughter after she was delivered by a cesarean section on March 7, 2015. The newborn later died. 

Harrison alleges the defendants failed to properly monitor the critical heart rate of her unborn child and decided to perform a C-section.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000. She is represented by Edward G. Proctor Jr. of Munday & Nathan in Chicago.
