Lahis testifies that the babies suffered from acute medical conditions, and that as young nurses, she and her colleagues found it a hard thing to witness. She testifies that they did not know how to correctly spell the names of the children, and that this might have caused identification problems. She does not remember how administration was handled in the hospital.
