The risk of contracting a hospital-acquired infection

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that on any given day in the United States, roughly 1 in 25 patients in a hospital will contract one of many healthcare-associated infections. In Massachusetts and across the country, people may enter a medical facility in need of help for an injury or illness but wind up needing additional treatment for conditions such as the following:

Medical mistakes made during pregnancy can be devastating

Pregnancy can be an extraordinary time for a family, and it is also a time to strictly monitor a mother’s health in order to protect the unborn child. At Donovan & O’Connor, LLP, we know how important it is for medical professionals in Massachussetts to give a mother information on what she can do to have a healthy pregnancy. Additionally, physicians should be monitoring the woman to spot and quickly address any potential complications.

Failure to give baby a breathing tube results in cerebral palsy

When a mother is laboring, there are certain precautions the medical staff must take in order to ensure a smooth process. Monitoring both the mother and the baby is an important part of preventing birth injuries in Massachusetts. At the first sign of distress, a physician may have to make emergency decisions to ensure the baby is not deprived of oxygen. As one recent incident illustrates, failing to do so can result in serious injuries.

Medical malpractice during birth can lead to cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects people's abilities to control their muscles. At Donovan & O'Connor, LLP, we have seen too many cases in Massachusetts in which children develop this condition as a direct result of a preventable birth injury.
