Health care professionals are responsible for monitoring and guarding the well-being of babies when they are under their care. They also need to provide treatment, when necessary, that meets accepted standards of care and when they fail to do so, their errors could be life-threatening to their patients.
Causes of birth injuries may include:
- Failure to monitor or respond to fetal distress during pregnancy, labor or delivery
- Failure to have emergency protocols in place in the event that a C-section is required to rescue a fetus in distress
- Faulty handling of a baby whose shoulders have become lodged in the mother’s pelvis during delivery
- Misdiagnosis of risk factors indicated during the prenatal period
- Overmedication or medication errors before or during labor
