An Oklahoma toddler with cerebral palsy is being denied medical treatment from hundreds of doctors, leaving him with little to no options for care in his state. After it was discovered that his parents are suing the doctor responsible for problems during his birth, the OU Physicians group, which has 600 doctors across Oklahoma, sent his parents a letter stating that he can no longer be treated by physicians within this network.
Henry Hale was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of one. He is now three years old and his parents have been seeking legal damages for complications during birth for over a year. The family claims the physician that delivered their son did not provide the mother with the proper standard of care during labor and delivery. The Hales have filed a restraining order against OU Physicians and are seeking other medical specialists to treat their son. Unfortunately, it has been difficult to find treatment otherwise because most physicians in Oklahoma work under OU Physicians. Emergency medical care would not be denied to the family, however.
