How Could This Happen at My Hospital?

When we discuss medical malpractice and negligence, what we’re really talking about is trust. Some could even call it faith. As patients, we have faith in our doctor and his or her staff. Of course, they have a duty to provide the standard level of care for all patients, but it becomes so much more than that when it deals with our family. We trust these men and women, and we believe, or at least want to believe, that they have our loved one’s best interests in mind. Sadly, in some cases, medical professionals fall short and end up violating that trust. In regards to HIE, there are a number of complications and warning signs that doctors could miss or disregard entirely:

  • Failure to adequately monitor the fetal heart rate
  • Failure to notice umbilical cord strangulation
  • Delays in responding to any other abnormalities
  • Failure to order a Cesarean on time
