Failure to monitor vital signs during pregnancy and delivery can have devastating consequences

At all times during a pregnancy, and especially during labor and delivery, the health of the mother and her fetus are a top priority. One of the most reliable ways to ensure that all is well with mother and child is the monitoring of their vital signs. Vital signs can provide valuable insight into any complications and give your medical team advance notice so early action can be taken.

On the other hand, when medical professionals fail to monitor vital signs, it can lead to complications that may result in significant health problems, birth injuries or even death. Every member of your medical team has a duty to remain diligent through every stage of the pregnancy, labor and delivery in order to ensure that all is well with the mother and child. When that duty is not fulfilled, the medical professionals and the facilities they work for can be held accountable.

Know your rights and legal options

When patients suffer substantial harm because of a medical professional's negligence, they have the right to be fully compensated for the medical care necessary to correct the problem as well as any other damages allowed under the law. Depending on the nature and severity of the injuries, it may be appropriate to seek damages for future medical care and other considerations.

If you or your child is suffering in any way because a member of your medical team failed to properly monitor blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, temperature or any other vital sign, you may have grounds to pursue a medical malpractice claim. A qualified attorney can evaluate your case and help you understand your legal options.

Do not wait to seek legal advice if you believe you may have a claim.
