Difficulties diagnosing fetal distress

Fetal distress is a powerful warning sign that all is not well in a pregnancy or during labor, and Massachusetts health care providers must be able to recognize the warning signs and respond rapidly to protect the health of you and your baby. However, there remains a great deal of confusion surrounding the concept of fetal distress in the medical field today, and the potential for mistakes is high. We at Donovan O’Connor and Dodig, LLP, understand how state and federal laws protect expecting mothers from physician errors.

Electronic health records linked to medical errors

Electronics are intended to make life easier, but the transition to electronic health records has not been smooth for many health care facilities in Massachusetts and around the United States. Indeed, recent reports indicate that in some cases, the use of electronic records has increased the incidence of doctor errors.

Failure to Diagnose

Chest pain is perhaps the most recognizable symptom of a heart attack, but sometimes it is minimal or not present at all. A patient suffering from one of these silent attacks may disregard other symptoms or not notice them. All heart attacks, diagnosed or undiagnosed, pose a serious threat, so it is crucial that Massachusetts physicians be aware of the risk of silent heart attacks.
