Colorado State Board of Medical Examiners v. Jorgensen
The revocation proceeding arose from three incidents. In the first, Jorgensen attempted to deliver the baby of an Idaho Springs woman at her home. The woman was in labor for fifty-four hours. During that time, the appellant ignored indications of fetal distress, administered a drug in dosages greatly exceeding safe levels, and strongly objected to the womans going to a hospital. The child was eventually delivered by Caesarian section performed by another physician at a hospital.
