Ohio Medical Malpractice Attorneys Seek Justice for Injured Infants After Neonatal Intensive Care Errors

neonatal We don’t rest until medical errors are brought to light

Few experiences in life are as frightening or heartbreaking as the moment you learn your newborn baby is in danger and requires a stay in the neonatal intensive care unit. Unfortunately, for far too many parents, the worry deepens, as neonatal intensive care errors lead to increased danger and pain for their newborns. At the Eisen Law Firm, our Cleveland medical negligence attorneys provide aggressive representation to parents whose children have become victims of medical mistakes. We fight to ensure your child receives the quality care he or she deserves.

What is neonatal intensive care?

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, more commonly referred to as NICU, is a special area of the hospital devoted to providing care for ill or premature infants. The “neonatal” period commonly refers to the first 28 days of a baby’s life, and it is during this time period that babies may be sent to the NICU for critical care.

The doctors, nurses, pharmacists, lactation consultations and respiratory therapists working in the NICU are expected to be specially trained to deal with the unique challenges of treating newborns.

The specialized care and technology available in the NICU are designed to address a wide range of newborn medical issues, including:

Whatever the factors leading to the need for NICU attention, each and every baby in the specialized care unit should be provided with quality and attentive care throughout their stay. Not all hospitals that deliver babies have a NICU. If your baby is born at such a hospital and needs intensive care, he or she will be transferred to another hospital that has a NICU.

NICU errors are often tragic and devastating

Despite the years of specialized training NICU professionals often receive, serious mistakes do occur within the unit. Like any other medical errors, these mistakes have the potential to change the life of the victim and their family forever.

In the NICU, however, errors carry the added weight of affecting newborns and new parents. Errors that commonly occur within the NICU include:

If you feel that your child’s medical care team has committed an error or negligence, it is important to discuss your case with an experienced malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
