Errors and failures with C-Sections
Potential Risks: C-sections are of course like any major operation never without risk to mother or child. From foetal distress, to post operation infections and blood clots, problems can occur. In serious cases these can lead to lifetime medical issues and even in rare cases, death to mother or baby. These issues are sometimes caused by a serious lack of care and medical negligence.
Two categories that this type of negligence often falls into.
- Failure to perform a C-Section
- Incorrectly performed C-Sections
- Pre-Natal Indicators: Failure to recognise indications that a C-Section may be required.
- Botched Surgery: Botched surgery while performing a C-Section leading to injuries like lacerated internal organs, improper wound closures and infections.
- C-Section Delay: Injury caused by a delayed C-Section.
- Foetal Distress: Baby injured or deprived of Oxygen from fetal distress.
