That's ridiculous. That's why we get so much crap on TV. Unless this all takes place in a nightmare, it should be grounded within the physics of the universe it presents.

It's one thing to have people's spirits roving around. There are a lot of people who firmly believe in hauntings. It's part of our folklore.
However, it's a far different thing when something that is common procedure in the real would is violated. When the ambulance shows up, they take the person away. They continue to provide life-saving measures until a qualified person pronounces them dead.
Now, you could say mom dragging her to the curb was unrealistic...why didn't they stop her. Well, that can be explained by the shocked expression on the EMT's face. He was taken by surprise. He likely wouldn't try to stop her based on how many EMT's get attacked by crazy people they are trying to help. If the scene had run a few seconds more, we might have scene cops drag mom away from the body.
The sono tech saw hooves on the fetus, and the doctor never saw the results of the sonogram?
He wasn't there. What would he have seen? Unless the tech printed the image or recorded the feed of the cloven hoof baby, the image went away when the tech fainted and was no longer holding the imager on the womb. The machine doesn't just store that stuff for later.
Even if he did see the images, it was billed as being a malfunction. Seriously, why would any rational medical professional believe someone has a devil baby inside them?
The sono tech's reaction was actually the least realistic. Anyone in her position would have called in a doctor to confer on it, perform another test with a second machine to rule out defective equipment and schedule further tests to see what was up.
However, if she was indeed someone who would freak out that way (which is possible - there are all kinds of people out there), it stands to reason the rest of the staff would take that with a grain of salt. Her reaction would be isolated to her only, pending further testing. The medical community is way to set on science to believe what she did out of hand. They test, test and test again and still will never acknowledge anything they can't explain with science.
The thing is, the parents got called away before a second opinion or another test could be performed, so all the doctors had to go one was a freaked out tech who they likely assumed hit her head when she fainted.
