Don't let birth injuries go without fighting for answers

Birth injuries are tragic because they affect the most vulnerable. A child that has just come into the world may be suffering as a result of neglect or issues that they had no ability to prevent. The child's mother may be badly hurt or have passed away from mistakes that now impact that infant for the rest of their life.

Birth injuries aren't always the fault of a medical team, but there are times when they are. For instance, using forceps too forcefully could endanger a child's life and result in them suffering injuries to their neck or shoulders. Today, these are rarely used except for in the very final stages of delivery. Poor education in the appropriate time to use forceps could lead to injuries that were completely unnecessary.

Failing to monitor patients is another major problem that can lead to birth injuries. For instance, a mother may bleed to death if there is a significant hemorrhage. Some blood is normal, called lochia, but if a mother is bleeding excessively and her vitals aren't stable, she should be treated immediately.

Neglect in the form of ignoring patients or their complaints is among the most frustrating actions medical providers can take. Whether it's a mother who says she doesn't feel well after giving birth or a child whose vital signs showed distress but were ignored, patients deserve better care than that. Medical providers need to do all they can to pay attention to their patients, to stay updated on the correct protocols in today's medical field and to be aware of what they're doing (and if it will help or hurt patients).
