Albany-- A little girl, who's fingers had to be amputated because of botched procedure at Phoebe Putney Hospital has been awarded more than two million dollars.

When eight-year-old Jessica Ramsey was born prematurely at Phoebe Putney, her arm was taped down for an IV, but the tape was too tight. It cut off the blood flow to her fingers, and, as a result, four fingers on her left hand had to be amputated.

While Phoebe Putney admitted liability in the case, a settlement couldn't be reached. So the case was presented to a Dougherty State Court jury which yesterday awarded the child two point eight million dollars.
