Failed Abortion Negligence Claims
In short, Failed Abortion Negligence Claims are the result of an even more difficult time than normal.
Deciding to terminate a pregnancy is an intensely personal and difficult decision. That’s true whether it’s due to financial, health, emotional, or any other reasons. Moreover, it is not a choice which especially women (or perhaps their partners) consider lightly. The emotional significance becomes even more apparent when a termination goes wrong due to abortion negligence.
What is Failed Abortion Negligence?
The method medical professionals apply to terminate pregnancy depends on how far along the pregnancy is.
- Medical abortion procedures, for instance, go through up to nine weeks and consist of the pregnant woman taking two doses of medicine.
- Surgical abortions, in contrast, would occur up to 15 weeks of pregnancy. In essence, they involve the use of a gentle vacuum to empty the womb. Typically, the procedure requires a local anaesthetic, which therefore means the woman can return home the same day.
But what about the chances of a failed abortion? In this situation, the foetus remains in place, and the pregnancy continues.
To be clear, the chances of this happening (statistically speaking) are rather slight.
Estimates, for instance, suggest there are around 14 in 1,000 medical abortions and 2 for every 1,000 surgical abortions. When it does happen, however, it makes for an understandably distressing time for the woman. It’s also possible for an incomplete abortion, where remains of pregnancy tissue stay in the uterus, to occur.
Some examples of failed surgical abortion negligence claims
Failed abortion negligence can ultimately include the following examples.
- For instance, the lack of total consent from a patient.
- Additionally, the failure to identify when either a failed or even a partial abortion occurs.
- Furthermore, the causing of an injury to the cervix or uterus.
- Not identifying when a patient is rhesus negative, too.
- Failure to detect clotting or infection at a follow-up check.
- There’s also instances of unexpected or wrongful birth.
