Pediatric Malpractice Cases can Cause Serious Injuries
Medical malpractice involving children can range from surgical errors to birth injuries. Chelsie King Garza helps children and their parents in pediatric malpractice claims, including:
- Surgical errors – injuries caused during or as a result of surgical neglect
- Failure to properly treat infection
- Overdosing medication or prescribing the wrong medication
- Misdiagnosis of a treatable condition or the failure to make a diagnosis
- Injuries suffered during delivery
Treating a child is different from treating adults. The medications given to children can be different. The dosing for a child must be altered. The signs and symptoms of illness may be different with a child. Doctors and nurses must be aware of the differences to properly treat a child.
Proper Medical Care Needs to Begin before Birth
Some birth defects can be detected before birth. A timely diagnosis gives the medical team at birth, the information they need to properly care for the child when they are born. Failing to diagnose congenital defects in the womb or shortly after birth can cost a child their life. So to can failing to manage those birth defects properly after delivery. For example:
- Failing to properly monitor babies during surgery to correct congenital defects
- Failing to diagnose timely and treat cancer
- Premature babies that do not receive appropriate care
