DNA Testing in Hospital Baby Mix-Ups

DNA Testing in Hospital Baby Mix-Ups

Most hospitals (and all UK hospitals) have policies and procedures to prevent baby mix ups. However, on rare occasions across the world, such stories surface as “child swap” or “baby swap” in the international media. The implications for the families concerned are profound and tricky legal and ethical situations arise. In one recent case in Cannes, compensation has been awarded recently for a mix up that occurred 20 years ago.

dadcheckscotland is able to provide DNA evidence regarding such situations, with a requirement for both a maternity and paternity test against the child’s DNA.
