You expect to receive the best possible medical care but when a hospital or doctor fails to live up to that standard you are left suffering. Eight babies didn't make it through open heart surgery at St Mary's hospital in West Palm Beach, Florida. Many of the parents are devastated that no one warned them that the hospital was inexperienced in the type of pediatric open heart surgeries they were performing. . Dr. Jeffrey Jacobs, professor of cardiac surgical procedures at John Hopkins University, gave the hospital a scathing evaluation when he visited. Jacobs stated that inexperience was a major issue in the hospital's failure. The small number of pediatric heart surgeries being performed at the hospital made it difficult for the surgical team to acquire and maintain proficiency in these types of challenging procedures. The grieving parents wonder if money is the object of St Mary's decision to continue to operate a Pediatric open heart unit. Pediatric open heart surgeries are lucrative the cost for one surgery is around half a million. Studies show hospitals with fewer surgeries tend to have higher death rates, especially when the surgeries are complex.
