How to defend your baby from fetal distress

Pregnancy comes with a tangled web of information that can easily overload you. If you are expecting, or just hoping to be expecting, you know there are mountains of books to read. In an attempt to make the information a little easier to tackle, this short discussion will tell you the basics you need to know about fetal distress. It is a condition that still does not have well defined regulation, so you want to help your caregivers keep an eye out for it. While your doctor's and nurse's have a duty to do everything they can for you and your baby, mistakes and oversights do happen, so it is important to arm yourself with knowledge about the symptoms and warning signs of fetal distress.

Hospital negligence possible in New Jersey hospitals

Hospitals are generally a place that New Jersey residents go when surgery is required, a baby is being born or emergency medical assistance is needed. For many, the hospital is able to take care of their needs and allow them to return home within a reasonable period of time. While New Jersey hospitals do have a reputation for quality care, there is still the potential for hospital negligence to occur.

Negligence plays central role in medical malpractice

Do well-informed patients have the ability to prevent instances of medical malpractice by advocating for themselves? Not really, as this is a common and pervasive myth that tends to hide the real reasons behind devastating patient injuries. Negligence at the hands of a trusted health care professional should not be blamed on the victim. The main types of malpractice, including failure to diagnose, misdiagnoses and medication error fall on the shoulders of the attending medical provider and not the injured party.
