Hypoxic and ischemic brain injuries might deserve compensation

On this blog last week, we covered hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. Learning that your baby is suffering from this condition can evoke a wide range of feelings in parents. Anger, hurt and denial are some of the common feelings. You might start to wonder why your child has to suffer. You might wonder how you are going to give your child the best life possible despite the diagnosis. We understand how you feel. We want to work with you to hold the person responsible for your child's condition accountable for his or her errors or negligence.

Birth injury profile: Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy

Many childbirths happen without any complications; however, it is always possible that something will happen that puts the mother or baby at risk. One complication that can occur is hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. This occurs when the baby's brain doesn't get enough oxygen. Our Kentucky readers might be interested in learning a little about this condition.

What is failure to diagnose?

While most doctors do their best to ensure their patients are well taken care of and diagnosed and treated properly, there are also many cases every year where doctors either misdiagnose patients or fail to diagnose the condition at all. Failing to diagnose a condition in a timely manner can mean that the treatment process is complicated once the diagnosis is finally made, and the prognosis for the patient may also be worse.

Fewer hospital mistakes reported, numbers still troubling

People who seek medical care at a hospital don't expect that they will suffer from negligence that might make their medical condition worse. They don't expect that they will suffer adverse effects from their hospital stay. Fortunately, the efforts being made at hospitals around the country are making issues related to hospital errors much less prevalent than it has been previously.
