Failure To Recognize Fetal Distress

Failure To Recognize Fetal Distress Lawyer in New York City

One of the most important medical devices in any birth is the fetal monitoring strip. Fetal monitoring strips provide nurses with information about the child’s heart rate. Nurses and obstetricians should rely on this information to determine a plan for the child’s birth. Fetal monitoring strips can let these professionals know if the fetus is in distress and whether the fetus needs to be delivered immediately.

When faced with evidence of fetal distress, obstetricians must make accurate decisions in order to minimize risk to the child and mother. When these doctors fail in their duties, the child can suffer oxygen deprivation, which in turn can lead to profound brain damage or death. If your child suffered brain damage or some other birth injury, he or she will require special care. The costs of this care will be very expensive. A malpractice claim can be instrumental in helping your child receive money for the care he or she will need to live as full a life as possible.
