Birth Injury Causes
It should be your medical provider’s number one priority to make sure that any complications or injuries are prevented. Doctors and nurses should do everything in their power to prevent these common medical mistakes:
Negligence can occur if your doctor fails to diagnose you or your child with any potential complications before and after the delivery. If any injury occurs and he has failed to diagnose you or your baby’s condition, it is considered negligence.
Forceps are essential in a successful delivery. These tools aid in the birthing process, however too much pressure from these instruments could lead to severe skull or facial injury.
- Lack of oxygen
Oxygen supply can be greatly limited in babies who are born with the umbilical cord around their neck. Doctors must act quickly in these situations, as not removing it in time could lead to brain damage due to lack of oxygen.
- Breech delivery
Breech deliveries occur when the baby is born feet first. This type of delivery always requires an emergency C-section to prevent skull injuries and broken bones in the baby.
Other examples of negligence injuries can include problems during circumcision, failure to treat infections, and failure to diagnose internal injuries.
