Labor and Delivery Complications and Errors
Labor and delivery are complex processes, and medical staff must make fast and accurate decisions regarding protocol when a baby is being born. Medical staff can sometimes make mistakes that jeopardize the health of the baby. Improper fetal monitoring, improper medication choices, improper use of forceps and vacuum extractors, and failure to provide a timely C-section can all cause preventable injury.
Delayed C-Section, Fetal Monitoring Mistakes & Other Labor and Delivery Complications
Labor and delivery complications, which refer to any problems that arise during the birthing period, can be very dangerous to the health of both mothers and their babies. Many times, labor proceeds complication-free. However, many mothers will experience problems during the birthing process that, without proper medical attention and action, can be highly dangerous. When medical professionals fail to address and provide adequate care for labor and delivery complications, both the mother and the baby can be severely and permanently damaged. When preventable injuries occur, it is medical malpractice. Instances of medical malpractice should be evaluated by a birth injury attorney.
