Decision looming in HIV CHIPS case

By Logan Lafferty

A Brownsdale couple in court because of their child’s medical conditions and their views toward his HIV treatment should soon know if they retain full custody…Yet earlier Monday, Jones questioned Dr. W. Charles Huskins, a Mayo Clinic expert in pediatric infectious disease who was on call when Rico was born, about concerns the clinic staff had at the time of the birth…Lindsey testified that Mayo medical professionals already knew she was HIV positive from past records, confirmed it with her while she was pregnant, and she never received any advice about HIV risk-reducing drugs for her unborn child.
