Joshua Jackson was born at home nearly 12 weeks prematurely. He was taken to The Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida. There, according to the lawsuit, nurses improperly inserted a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC), which is a type of intravenous line. The misplaced line remained in place for nearly a week. While the line was in place, Joshua's arm showed signs and symptoms of impeded blood flow. Eventually, "Baby Jackson's left hand was...found by nurses to be shriveled and with black fingertips," according to the lawsuit.
