Unnecessary Cesarean Section and Medical Malpractice

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Medical Malpractice on Monday, July 11, 2016.

In the United States, nearly 1 in 3 women gives birth by cesarean section. According to the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, c-sections are too common in the country and have increased significantly since first measured in the 1960s.

In the United States, nearly 1 in 3 women gives birth by cesarean section. According to the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, c-sections are too common in the country and have increased significantly since first measured in the 1960s.

In a recent data reported by 1,122 hospitals, it was found that more than 60% of reporting hospitals has excessive c-section rates. This means that a high number of women are undergoing a major abdominal procedure without medical requirement.

Although c-sections are a common procedure, surgery can run higher risks than natural birth. While it is clear that this procedure may help in saving many lives in many cases, many health care experts are warning that c-section surgery is becoming extremely overused. According to these experts, there is no proof that the procedure improves the circumstances for women in labor.

Guidelines for C-Sections

Guidelines have been released by healthcare experts after they reached a consensus that women and their medical providers should give labor some time before deciding to use a c-section as the choice for extracting the baby. They advise patience instead of hurrying a surgical or medical procedure that may not have any benefits at all.

According to the guidelines, healthcare professionals, governing groups, administration and organizations should try to discover new information to help in making choices and decisions with regard to c-section surgery. They also encourage policy changes to lower the rate of this procedure and increase safety for delivery methods.

Malpractice

Any surgical procedure can give rise to medical malpractice. If the doctor who is treating the mother is unequipped or unable to perform a cesarean section or the surgery becomes complicated, there are additional issues that can arise. It is possible that a medical professional may perform something incorrectly, forget something, or cause further complications.

A patient may be injured in such a way that they require medicine, treatment or another procedure. These expenditures can be compensated through pursuing a medical malpractice claim.

If the medical staff is unable to perform a c-section promptly, it may result in the infant experiencing suffering with oxygen deprivation or pain due to the process. With the possible injuries, brain conditions and in some cases, cerebral palsy may develop. It is critical for medical professionals to make sure that they take all necessary precautions when delivering a baby through c-section surgery.
