Treating Children Requires Heightened Observation
Providing medical care to children can be challenging. As a pediatrician, many times your patient cannot tell you where it hurts. Good pediatricians understand how important it is to listen to parents and to take their concerns seriously. When parents are ignored and children suffer needlessly because of misdiagnosis or improper treatment, pediatric malpractice may have occurred.
At the Cleveland law firm of The Lancione Law Firm, our experienced attorneys are dedicated to fighting pediatric malpractice throughout Ohio. Our goal is to help our clients recover and to improve the quality and safety of medical care in our state by holding negligent doctors, nurses and hospitals to account for the harm they cause.
If your child suffered as a result of pediatric negligence, please call (440) 220-4439 or email our lawyers today.
Cold Symptoms? A Workup For RSV Is Crucial In Pediatric Care
RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) is a fairly common condition in infants. While RSV is rarely life-threatening for healthy infants, newborns — particularly premature babies and others with breathing problems or immune deficiencies — may suffer serious harm or die if pneumonia, RSV or another serious condition is not diagnosed promptly.
When a pediatrician, NICU doctor or emergency room physician fails to do a workup for RSV and pneumonia and instead diagnoses cold or bronchitis, he or she may be held accountable for the potentially serious or fatal consequences.
Upset Stomach? Your Doctor Should Know To Look For A Bowel Obstruction
Bowel obstruction is one of the most common causes of surgical emergency among newborns. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment is critical. Unfortunately, many of the early symptoms can be misinterpreted as ordinary stomach upset. Doctors understand this and should always employ differential diagnosis to rule out the most serious condition. If they fail to do so and a child suffers serious harm, this may form the basis of a medical malpractice claim.
