Determining the Guilty Party Responsible For Birth Injuries

It is widely known that a negligent doctor ultimately takes the fall in case of a birth injury attributed to medical malpractice. In actual sense, both the hospital management and nurses can be held accountable in case complications arise during the delivery process of a newborn child.

Since the hospital management is responsible for the hiring of new staff, it is in their best interests to adhere to strict regulations regarding verified credentials, training, verification and education of new and existing employees. The absence of such prudent requirements can inexplicably lead to medical malpractice with a birth injury the worst case scenario. To aggravate the situation, certain hospitals opt to hire unqualified workers, yet they can abruptly affect the hospital's reputation sooner rather than later. Hospitals dedicated to effective service delivery should possess adequate staff, comprising of doctors, nurses and cleaners at all times to accommodate the regular influx of patients.

In the absence of such professionals, a hospital can be sued for endangering an infant or mother during critical emergency procedures. Incomplete tests can also throw a spanner in the works by piling more charges to the guilty party. As a victim, it is irrefutable that your physical and mental wellbeing might never be the same again. Whether it's a serious injury such as a uterine rupture, a brain injury or even a stillbirth from an expectant woman, hoping for a full recovery might seem like a daunting task, to say the least. The substantial medical expenses will be catered for by compensation upon a conclusive inquiry. Medical misdiagnosis isn't a far-fetched idea when a negligent doctor prescribes the wrong medication courtesy of poorly organized medical records.

A birth injury can adversely affect a mother's mental wellbeing, let alone the child's chances of survival. In such a situation, the victimized mother might contemplate illegal acts for failing to protect her child, yet the supervising doctor neglected to discharge services effectively. In special circumstances, an independent contractor might be held accountable especially when they exhibited incompetence when conducting medical operations. A pharmaceutical company is also liable to prosecution when they failed to inform doctors of the various side effects associated with specified medication.
