Common Delivery Errors

Doctors and midwives are tasked with ensuring that a mother and her baby are safe during the labor and delivery process. If something goes wrong, they must take steps to respond to the problems. Failure to take the appropriate steps is considered medical malpractice when it causes a baby or mother harm.

Common delivery errors include:

  • Failure to detect fetal distress
  • Failure to diagnose and treat maternal infection
  • Failure to order a timely C-section
  • Medication errors, including Pitocin errors
  • Forceps errors
  • Vacuum extractor errors

Injuries that can result from delivery errors during labor and birth include cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy, shoulder dystocia, brain damage, seizure conditions and even death.
