An Auckland mother is blaming Middlemore Hospital staff for breaking her one-month old baby's arm. The woman, who does not want to be named, took her son to the hospital last Wednesday with suspected measles, but doctors later discovered the baby had fractured his right arm. The family insist say they are not responsible for the injury and they want the hospital to be held to account. Te Aniwa Hurihanganui reports.
