Inspection finds ‘deficiencies’ in patient rights at hospital that treated Marlen Ochoa-Lopez’s baby after he was cut from her womb

Poor communication between law enforcement and medical staff violated patient rights standards in the case of a newborn who was cut from his mother’s womb and brought to a suburban hospital with another woman, according to a federal inspection.

The finding was included in a six-page report on the inspection released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on Friday — the same day that the infant, 7-week-old Yovanny Jadiel Lopez, died at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn after being on life support.
