Medical Errors leading to Cerebral Palsy

Medical Errors leading to Cerebral Palsy

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

Cerebral palsy can result in lifelong challenges and obstacles for your child. This group of neurological disorders is typically caused by oxygen deprivation to a baby during childbirth. A baby being born with the disorder does not necessarily mean medical malpractice has occurred. But in some instances, a medical mistake can deprive a baby of oxygen and lead to cerebral palsy. There are a number of ways this can happen, including:

  • Failure to order a C-section when the child is too large for the birth canal
  • Careless and improper use of forceps, vacuum or other birthing instruments
  • Improper monitoring of fetal heart rate
  • Failure to diagnose and treat infections in a pregnant mother
  • Improper detection or response to umbilical cord prolapse
