Patient Care Mismanagement & Treatment Delays

It is imperative that a high level of patient care is provided in order to prevent any complications with the birthing process and to help spot any pregnancy warning signs. Complications can regretfully arise when the mother has received little prenatal and postnatal care, has a history of pregnancy or birth complication or an underlying health condition.

Types of Patient Care Mismanagement & Treatment Delays  

When under the care of the NHS or private health care provider, the patient is owed a duty of care regarding their pregnancy or birth. Instances may however arise resulting in a poor standard of care. This may include:

  • Poor care regarding blood, urine, blood pressure, foetal heart beat tests and ultrasound scans
  • Errors in setting up regular appointments
  • A delay or failure in carrying out regular pelvic examinations, foetal anomaly scans and detecting chromosome abnormalities
  • Admittance to the wrong ward
  • Lack of adequate nourishment
  • Disregard of visiting family members including the baby’s father
  • Lack of patient care regarding their birthing plan, complaints and concerns of labour and birth
  • Errors in providing effective pain relief
  • Lack of precautionary antibiotics
  • Disregard of nursing problems such as latching
