DNA Testing in Hospital Baby Mix-Ups

Many hospitals (and all UK hospitals) has 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 because of a hospital baby mix-up that occurred 20 years ago.

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