Servicing Stratford and all of Ontario
Stratford’s local media are always on the lookout for a “good news” story to bring a smile to the faces of their readers, listeners and viewers. And it’s no surprise Stratford’s first baby of the New Year often fits the bill. One recent New Year’s baby was reportedly “a very content baby” and sleeping well when reporters sought out the delighted parents.
Sadly, not all birth stories are this positive. Some new parents will be devastated to learn there were problems during the birthing process and their newborn sustained serious, lifelong disability as a result. From acquired brain injuries and asphyxia, to brachial plexus disorders to permanent scarring and bones bones, birth injuries can forever change the life of a child and their loved ones.
If a medical practitioner or facility breached standards of care during the birthing process due to negligence and caused serious harm to a mother or child, it’s called medical malpractice. Preventable injuries and deaths from medical negligence also occur from:
- Surgical Errors – performing the wrong surgery or operating on the wrong body part or patient, leaving foreign objects in the body, improper technique causing nerve damage or other injury, infection due to poor sanitary practices
- Medication Errors – a patient is prescribed the wrong medicine, given an incorrect dose or the drug is improperly administered
- Delayed or Misdiagnosis – failure to conduct the necessary tests and assessments at all or in a timely manner
