Post-Natal Infections

Fortunately, post-natal infections are rarer than they once were, largely due to advances in technology and birthing practices, in addition to advances in medical equipment. However, sometimes negligence on the part of doctors, nurses, or other medical personnel causes post-natal infections to develop in vulnerable babies. This can cause serious health problems, both short and long-term, for the infant.

Because it is the responsibility of medical professionals to act in all manners possible to prevent post-natal infections from developing, these professionals can be held legally accountable when their negligence or carelessness allows such a debilitating infection to occur. This can help a family obtain compensation and justice after their newborn baby’s health has been compromised.

Types of Infection

Sadly, there are a variety of different post-natal infections from which a baby can suffer. Some of the more common ones include:

  • Respiratory distress syndrome
  • Rotavirus
  • MRSA
  • Neonatal tetanus

These infections can result from the reckless or careless behavior of a doctor or other person who helped during the birth process. In such a situation, the families of babies who have suffered post-natal infections due to negligence can seek compensation that can help them remain financially stable while getting treatment for their child.
