Sued for being late to a delivery

An obstetrician is sued for being late to a delivery:

Suppose an obstetrician’s patient goes into labor, and for whatever reason the obstetrician is unable to make it to the hospital in time. So he calls in and has others cover for him to perform the delivery. Can the late obstetrician still be liable if injuries occur during delivery?
