That is awful.  I'm generally not one to jump to "sue them" but in this case I would and I would suggest anyone else who had this happen to them sue as well.

If it happened more than once already they shouldn't be a hospital.

Awful!!!!
I'm not one to be sue happy but this is 100% medical negligence and I sue so hard that I would shut them down.

Damn, like how do you even begin to tally up what that woman has lost.  Its not just her legs.  She has a family, eight children, a husband...now shes in a wheelchair & has to wear prosthetics.  Yes I realize shes alive but quality of life has probably gone down when you factor in needing to be cared for now, instead of the caretaker, and complications that come with prosthetics.

In December 2015, Ella Clarke was excited to meet her eighth child — a baby girl.
Clarke, 31, of Torquay, Devon, happened to have a condition called placenta previa, also known as a low-lying placenta. She was told midway through her pregnancy that she would have to deliver via c-section. This was no big deal, as the mama of seven had delivered six of her babies the same way.
Clarke was put to sleep for her scheduled c-section. But when she woke up six days later, she discovered both of her legs had been amputated below the knee.
It all started about 30 minutes into the c-section. Clarke’s placenta had embedded itself too deeply into her uterine wall — a complication known as placenta accreta— which caused massive hemorrhaging. As a result, she had an emergency hysterectomy, had five blood transfusions and was placed in an induced coma. Her baby girl, Winter Rose, was delivered safely.
While still in a coma, Clarke was supposed to be monitored every hour for blood clotting. Six hours allegedly passed without her being checked. Blood in her legs clotted, stopping circulation and depriving her lower limbs of blood supply. The deadly mistake was caught too late





They had to amputate her legs below the knee

I've read this before. If I remember correctly it happened in the UK. Which didn't surprise me because the NHS suck.

I would definitely sue! Not just bc they messed up and should have to pay, but she's going to need help raising 8 kids and not being able to walk. Even with prosthetics, that will take time and money to master. That poor mom and family
