What is Negligent Fetal Monitoring?
Several issues can lead to a birth injury. One of the most common is general negligence. When it comes to fetal monitoring, this may include:
- Undertrained staff
- Misreading of information
- Improper monitor installation
- Inattention to readouts
Failing to recognize signs of fetal distress and failing to take swift action once those signs are noticed are also common causes of birth injury. Having a legal team on your side that knows how to identify these issues can help ensure you and your family are provided the compensation you will need to deal with the consequences of these tragic events.
