When your child has been injured during childbirth

When a parent's child is injured during childbirth, the child may be left with lifelong disabilities. In the event that your child suffered a birth injury in Arizona due to the negligence of the medical staff, you may want to consider filing a medical malpractice civil lawsuit on your child's behalf.

Potential dangers of EFM

Electronic fetal monitoring, or EFM, is one of the tools most used by obstetricians and other birth medical providers to monitor the unborn baby during pregnancy and birth. Though culturally widely accepted, with over 85 percent of American pregnant women undergoing EFM, countless studies have shown that EFM and fetal death prevention are not correlated. Arizona residents who might be having or are considering having a baby might be interested in finding out the risks posed by the practice before making a decision about using it.

Reducing the potential for medical malpractice litigation

Health care providers can create problems for themselves when they ignore the basic needs and rights of their patients. A selfie with an unconscious patient, for example, is probably contrary to the privacy rights of that person. Such an invasion of privacy could become even more serious if the patient has a negative outcome. Arizona residents may remember that Joan Rivers' death during a routine procedure included such a scenario. At least one physician took a photo with the patient after she was unconscious.

Legislation may pave way for malpractice evidence

Arizona residents who will be undergoing surgical procedures may soon gain the ability to use video recordings as evidence in subsequent treatment error proceedings. If the state follows in the footsteps of others, like Wisconsin and New York, patients could be given the right to request that their surgeries be recorded in advance. Analysts say that the videos might both serve as study materials for medical practitioners seeking to reduce the incidence of errors as well as an indication of malpractice.
