Ectopic Pregnancy and Medical Malpractice in New York

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.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 600 women in the United States die each year due to pregnancy or delivery complications.

C-Section Errors and Medical Malpractice

The most common surgical procedure in hospitals in the United States is caesarean sections. The national c-section rate was 32.9% in 2009 and in 2014, it was 32.2%. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, there are significant improvements as the c-section rate tops 10%, but there is no evidence that there will be a continual improvement in health care quality once the rate in a country exceeds 15%.

Pregnancy Misdiagnosis and Medical Malpractice

In the last few decades, the number of ectopic pregnancies has seen a dramatic increase. According to a 2002 Obstetrics and Gynecology-published study, approximately 40% of pregnancies that are diagnosed as ectopic are later shown to be normal intrauterine pregnancies. In 2014, there were 14 pregnancy-related lawsuits filed by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
