However, in far too many cases, OB/GYNs failed to properly monitor the mother to be, in many cases causing irreparable harm and even wrongful death.

Skilled NJ Medical Malpractice Lawyers Fight for Maximum Compensation for Victims of Preventable Obstetrical Errors in Camden, New Jersey

Thankfully, the vast majority of pregnancies go well and couples are thrilled to welcome their new bundles of joy all around South Jersey, including Cherry Hill, Voorhees, Marlton. While it’s critical to monitor the baby’s development from conception through birth and beyond, it’s just as important obstetrical healthcare professionals do everything possible to keep the pregnant woman healthy before, during and after labor, as well.

If a pre-natal condition or delivery and/or post-delivery complication arises and is not quickly diagnosed and managed by doctors and nurses, subsequent injuries may be severe and long-lasting. When this happens, it’s often due to judgment errors on the part of the healthcare staff, miscommunication, overstaffing or staff fatigue, mistakes made by the hospital administration, equipment malfunction and incomplete or error-filled medical charts.

Common preventable obstetrical errors that occur throughout Camden and Burlington counties including Haddonfield, Maple Shade and Evesham include:

Failure to diagnose life-threatening conditions: Up to eight percent of women suffer from conditions such as pre-eclampsia, gestational hypertension or gestational diabetes.

Failure to properly manage pregnancy: This includes not performing the recommended pre-natal testing, including a gestational diabetes test, for example. Additionally, if conditions are diagnosed, failure to properly manage them can cause serious injury to the mother and baby.

Delay in determining mother or fetal distress: If the machines used to monitor the woman in labor malfunction or the attending healthcare professional, obstetrician, labor and delivery nurse, doula or midwife fails to diagnose and/or act upon the information, it may be considered a case of medical malpractice.

Vaginal delivery errors: If a baby is breech or otherwise wrongly positioned and the doctor either does not diagnose it early enough or uses forceps and/or vacuum tools incorrectly, the mother can be severely hurt.

C-section mistakes: Any mistake made during the Caesarian section surgery can cause fatal damage to the mother and/or infant. Further, whether or not a C-section is planned or not, failure to begin surgery at the right time based on fetal monitoring may be considered serious obstetrical malpractice. Failure to identify the need for a C-section is a common preventable error. Similarly, if a condition requiring a C-section could have diagnosed, allowing time to properly plan for the procedure, but wasn’t, the mother and baby can suffer irreparable harm.

Allergies or contraindications of medication: If the pregnant woman is prescribed drugs with known side affects for gestating babies or is given a medication she is known to be allergic to, the outcome on the mother and pregnancy can be disastrous.

In addition to potentially severe or fatal injury to the pregnant woman, there are many preventable obstetrical errors that cause birth injuries to the baby, as well. These include:
