Child Medical Negligence

When children become ill or unwell, and you need to take them to hospital, they will be looked after by doctors who are specially trained in the management of children (paediatricians). Unfortunately, paediatricians are not always called to treat children, and the treatment can be left in the hands of adult doctors who don’t have the specific training that they require for such cases leaving chances of negligent treatment.

Paediatric Care

Paediatrics has its own areas of sub-specialisation, mostly similar to the areas of subspecialisation of adult medicine and surgery, for example paediatric orthopaedics. Neonatologists specialise in children under the age of one month. Some paediatricians specialise in infants (children up to the age of one year) and young children, and others specialise in older children and adolescents.

Paediatric Care

While your child can suffer many conditions that are similar to the ones that an adult can, they can also suffer from other conditions that are present in childhood rather than in adulthood. For example, children may suffer from congenital problems, genetic or inherited conditions that manifest in childhood, and require specialist expertise or can lead to long-term health problems or developmental delay.

We have experience of succeeding in many cases for babies, infants and teenagers. One area of particular specialism is hip dysplasia, often called “clicky hips”. This needs to be diagnosed and operated on without delay after birth.

Diagnosis Errors in Acute Illness

Acute illness in your child which require immediate diagnosis and appropriate treatment include:

  • Infectious diseases, such as mumps, measles, etc.
  • Staphylococcal or meningococcal infections.
  • Acute epiglottitis
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia)
  • Acute anaphylaxis (acute response to an allergy)
  • Acute meningitis
  • Acute asthma
  • Status epilepticus (acute convulsions)
