Pediatric Negligence

As difficult and dangerous as the birth process can be, being safely born is no guarantee of continued good health. In fact, hundreds of babies each year suffer serious, permanent and needless harm after they have been born safely.

What causes that harm? In many cases, its negligence — negligence committed by pediatricians, nurses, surgeons or other hospital staff.

How so? For instance, conditions such as jaundice and hyperbilirubinemia are not uncommon in newborns. In some cases, these may just be temporary conditions that correct themselves. In others, medical intervention may be required.

However, when post-partum monitoring is lax or when signs that the baby isn't thriving aren't recognized and addressed, conditions like jaundice can lead to permanent brain damage if untreated.

Sometimes newborn children require surgical care. Pediatric surgery requires highly skilled surgical teams. Surgery performed on newborns or young infants is another cause of pediatric negligence claims.
