Was The Doctor Or Delivery Staff Negligent?
There is a risk to any medical procedure, and sometimes newborns can suffer severe brain injury even when the doctor and delivery staff did everything they were supposed to do. However, sometimes HIE results from preventable errors such as:
- Negligent prenatal care
- Lack of fetal monitoring during labor and delivery
- Failure to recognize signs of fetal distress
- Failure to perform a timely cesarean section
Symptoms of HIE may include bluish skin color, excess acid in the blood, poor feeding, lethargy, seizures, failure to respond to physical stimuli, and poor grasping and sucking reflexes.
