Lack of supervision in hospital leads to baby's death

In writing about medical malpractice, in previous blog posts we noted the high incidence of safety issues for Florida hospital patients. Sadly, the problem is not limited to Florida. Indeed, all over the world there are concerns about medical standards of care in hospitals, ranging from failure to appropriately supervise a patient and medication errors to birth injuries and surgical mistakes. It seems that almost daily we read of another incident involving malpractice in our medical institutions.

Florida hospital staff cited after woman's miscarriage

Staff members of a Florida hospital are being cited for failure to appropriately supervise a patient after a young woman lost her twins at 13 weeks gestation. Reportedly, the young woman and her mother were left alone for so long that the second fetus was delivered in the absence of medical staff. The young woman's mother, a registered nurse, was holding the tiny baby in her hand when the doctor finally came in. She told reporters that the doctor immediately said, "Put that down." She then stated that the doctor took the baby from her and put it into a bucket.

Jury selection under way in Florida medical malpractice retrial

Medical malpractice in Florida runs the gamut from birth injuries and medication errors to an unexpected death due to failure to appropriately supervise a patient. There is a lot that can go wrong before, during and after an operation, leading to claims of medical malpractice. Many of them are things that should not have gone wrong if ordinary and reasonable care was exercised.
