The risks and complications of C-section deliveries

Expecting mothers in Connecticut may be unaware of what risks exist whenever a C-section is performed. This type of delivery procedure carries higher risks during labor than vaginal birth and could also take longer to recover afterwards. There are specific risks to both the mother and her baby.

Vacuum and forceps-assisted birth delivery

Women who are expecting in Connecticut might wish to understand when a forceps delivery may be necessary. Often, additional help in delivering the baby may be needed, regardless of whether the cervix has become fully dilated or not. In this situation, a physician may determine that either vacuum-assisted or forceps delivery is mandated.

Hospital errors at an all-time high

According to a report by the Department of Public Health, there are record numbers of hospital patients being fatally wounded or critically injured by errors caused in Connecticut hospitals. The largest hospitals in the state reported the highest amounts of errors, including the most common mistakes, which involve medication errors, surgical procedure perforations and falls. The 2013 report finds that significant errors in the health care industry have more than doubled since the previous year; in 2012, 244 accidents were reported and by the next year, more than 500 accidents were filed.
