Failure to Monitor an Infant Can Cause Lasting Damage
The minutes, hours and days after a baby is born are crucial. Everything including their weight and temperature needs to be closely monitored. When doctors, nurses and hospital staff fail to pay attention and prevent things such as respiratory distress or heart rate, the results can be tragic.
Some of the most terrible neonatal injuries involve IV infiltration. This happens when the medication or food does not go into the blood vessel the IV was aimed at. This can lead to terrible scarring or even losing the ability to use a limb.
The bottom line in all of neonatal error cases is that most, if not all, can be prevented by closely monitoring the baby. Once a problem is discovered, there is no excuse for failing to act to protect the baby.
