Safety procedures required after infants were hurt at a hospital

When women give birth in New York hospitals, they expect that the staff will take good care of their infants. A recent case in Wisconsin demonstrates how important it is to have proper procedures in place to protect infants while they are at the hospital.

Five infants recently incurred fractures and bruises at a hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. Two of these babies had bruises on their arms and wrists, while others were bruised on their legs, ankles and feet. Another had skull and arm fractures. Doctors have suggested that the bruising came from objects the infants came into contact with at the hospital. Intravenous arm boards and wires to help stabilize newborn intensive care unit patients possibly caused the bruising on one infant, and another may have been harmed after being wrapped too tightly in a blanket.

A spokeswoman for a medical care company has said that a survey of the hospital uncovered areas where the facility failed to comply with recognized safety standards. Procedures to report and investigate injuries were found to be lacking, and the hospital also did not have appropriate training and prevention policies in place. Officials have noted that the bruising on the infants was not reported for six days after it was discovered. The hospital has begun taking steps to remedy these safety lapses. A hospital spokeswoman says that the facility is increasing its safety measures and working with health officials to develop a plan to implement proper safety standards.

Hospitals have an obligation to provide quality care for their patients. When they fail to provide this care and cause harm to a loved one, family members may want to speak with an attorney to learn what their options are.
