Negligence ruling against GP quashed
An Adelaide GP found guilty of negligence for failing to detect a pregnancy has won the right to have her case retried.
In April last year the SA District Court found Dr Randa El-Masri negligent after she failed to detect a pregnancy in a 48-year-old woman who went on to give birth to a boy with Down syndrome, leaving the doctor liable for damages.
