Cesarean sections often negligently performed

Cesarean sections are a type of surgery used to deliver babies if they cannot undergo a vaginal birth, or if mothers electively choose to deliver in this manner.  While C-sections are regularly performed, our staff at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seingeld, LLP knows that in many instances, both mother and child may be left with birth injuries or complications of varying severity following this procedure.

Shoulder dystocia birth injuries

As we mentioned in a previous post, shoulder dystocia is a serious birth injury associated with the vaginal delivery of large babies. The March of Dimes states that it usually occurs when a mother’s labor is obstructed so that the baby’s shoulders become stuck on the pubic bone and the baby is unable to be fully born without immediate medical intervention. Unfortunately, the condition as well as the intervention to save the child can cause babies to sustain serious injuries, some of which may cause permanent harm.

Doctors often wrong about baby size

When a baby is suspected of being large, it is known as macrosomia or Large for Gestational Age, states Macrosomia.com. The condition is often formally diagnosed when a baby weighs more than eight pounds, thirteen ounces at or before birth. To prevent the condition from becoming an issue, doctors will often recommend that women with LGA babies undergo a cesarean section birth. However, a new study indicates that the methods which doctors use to diagnose the condition are often inaccurate.

Potential effects of maxillofacial dental errors

Dental errors are a type of medical malpractice that focuses on injuries patients sustain during treatment by dental professionals.  Patients can sustain these injuries during almost any type of procedure, or they may result from a dental staff member’s failure to properly provide necessary medical care. Our staff at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, knows that these errors, particularly maxillofacial surgical errors, are a less common area of medical malpractice that can have serious consequences for injured patients.

Preventing surgical errors in the O.R.

Surgical errors are a major cause for concern in New York and in states across the country. According to a study performed by Johns Hopkins University, at least 4,000 mistakes occur in the operating room every year, as reported in Medical News Today. The numbers are thought to be much larger, however, as many surgical errors go unreported and even undiscovered. These medical mistakes are the result of miscommunication, oversight, and in some cases, complete negligence.
