NICU Errors Cause Your Baby To Suffer Needlessly

When children are born in distress— whether through illness, delay in delivery or premature birth — they are at a greater risk for ongoing, serious complications. Premature babies are especially at risk of developing respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), a serious and potentially life-threatening condition.

The treatment of newborns with RDS may include intubation and the administration of artificial surfactants. If these vital steps are not taken in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), or if other errors prevent the proper diagnosis and treatment of this serious condition, the consequences can be devastating. Other common neonatal intensive care errors include:

  • Failure to respond appropriately to high bilirubin levels, untreated jaundice or kernicterus
  • Esophageal intubation
  • Medication errors of all kinds
  • Failure to conduct or accurately interpret cord blood gas tests
  • General inattention or distraction
  • Patient misidentification resulting in improper treatment
  • Negligent charting, documentation or labeling
  • Improper ventilator settings

If your child suffered needlessly due to a neonatal intensive care error, it is vitally important to discuss your situation with a trusted and experienced medical malpractice and birth injury lawyer.
