Pediatric Medical Malpractice
One of the hardest things to watch as a parent is when your Child Gets sick. Those moments when your defenseless child is having difficulty breathing or is unable to keep any food down are some of the most worrisome moments that parents have. When you take your child to the doctor and the hospital you are going to get your child help. You want to do whatever it takes to see them happy and healthy once more. And where doctors everywhere swear not to do harm; there are instances where a doctor can cause additional damage to one of their patients. This can be particularly difficult when that patient is a child.
Pediatric Malpractice can come from a variety of means. But the earliest form of pediatric care comes before birth. It is ensuring that the mother is taken care of and all medical issues that can be addressed are taken care of it critical. While in labor there are many different instances where a doctor needs to make the best call for the child and mother quickly. When these are not done well, there can be injuries that are suffered during the delivery.
There are also surgical errors which are injuries that can be caused during or after surgery due to neglect. There are also medication errors. These can happen when medications were prescribed wrong leading to overdoses or the child was prescribed the utterly wrong medication. One of the most significant errors that can take place is the failure to diagnose or a misdiagnosis. This one can be particularly difficult as it may seem like your child is getting care, but it is getting the wrong attention that can be harming her or him.
