Improper Fetal Monitoring
Fetal monitoring is one of the most critical components of safe delivery of healthy children. The doctors and nurses charged with monitoring the status of a fetus or recently born infant should be able to uncover problems such as:
- Fetal distress
- Umbilical cord compression
- Hypoxia and anoxia (lack of blood or oxygen)
- Signs of emergency requiring cesarean delivery (C-section)
- Errors associated with a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)
When doctors or nurses properly monitors the status of a fetus, there is a much greater chance that they will be able to detect the early warning signs of potential problems and take action to prevent injury or death.
In some cases, however, doctors and nurses fail to properly monitor the status of the child and mother resulting in complications that can lead to:
- Erb's palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- High bilirubin
- Brain damage
For parents of children who have suffered these injuries, it is a terrible tragedy that sometimes could have been prevented with proper monitoring by medical care professionals. In the past 25 years, our attorneys have resolved many cases favorably for clients whose children suffered wrongful death or serious personal injuries.
