Types of Harmful C-Section Errors

A Caesarian-section, or C-section, can be an incredibly useful medical procedure to help protect a pregnant mother and her child by offering an alternative to traditional child birth. It can also be incredibly dangerous when done incorrectly.

Every medical provider who assists women during childbirth needs to carefully make their decision when deciding to proceed with a C-section, or not.

Failing to properly assess the situation, the mother’s health, and that of her child before making that call can constitute medical malpractice if the end result is serious harm to the mother, her child, or both.

Examples of C-section errors that could cause a serious birth injury:

  • Incorrectly performed C-section
  • Unnecessarily performed C-section
  • Wrongfully delayed C-section
  • Failing to perform a C-section

If you or your child suffered an injury during childbirth as a result of C-section negligence, call our Phoenix C-section malpractice lawyers for help.

Delayed Delivery

One example of C-section malpractice is delayed delivery. This occurs when a doctor fails to act quickly enough when it becomes clear that an emergency C-section is necessary. In some cases, this can result in serious injury or death for either the baby or the mother due to lack of oxygen or other complications from the delay.

Failure to Monitor Vital Signs

Failure to monitor vital signs during a C-section can also be malpractice. It is important for medical professionals to closely monitor both the mother and baby's vitals throughout the procedure in order to ensure that there are no potential problems arising during delivery. Failing to do so could lead to serious complications.

Inadequate Anesthesia Management

Inadequate anesthesia management during a C-section is another form of malpractice that can occur during delivery. If the anesthesia is not administered correctly or the patient is not monitored properly, it can result in serious complications, which can include maternal hemorrhage, cardiac arrest, and even death.

Unnecessary C-Section

Unnecessary surgery is another form of C-section malpractice that can occur when a doctor performs a C-section without any medical indication for doing so.

This type of malpractice can be particularly dangerous as it exposes both mother and baby to unnecessary risks such as infection, blood loss, and trauma from surgery without any benefit in terms of health outcomes for either party involved.

C-Section Surgical Errors

Although cesarean sections are considered routine procedures, mistakes can still happen. Common surgical errors during C-sections include incorrect incisions, damage to organs, and improper closure of incisions, which can lead to infection. These mistakes can have long-lasting effects on a patient's physical and mental health.
