Fortunately the incidence of Mistakes in Clinical Obstetrics and Gynaecology practice in Australia is very low. However for the family involved in the birth of a child where mistakes have occurred, the long term suffering can be enormous.
The commonest causes of problems around obstetric mistakes are:
1. Management mistakes of the pregnancy itself
2. Wrongful management of the delivery vaginally or by section or
3. Improper management of foetal distress.
The person/s responsible for these serious mistakes may be a person on their own or as part of a team. The event of pregnancy is unlike any other part of medicine in that there are time limitations in the successful birth of the child and hence is it paramount that the management team or individual must be highly trained in the management of pregnancy and its complications.
It is on record that there is a wide discrepancy of competence in the field of obstetrics including Obstetricians, Midwives and family practitioners, labour ward staff, paediatricians and neonatologists.
The complications may include just some of the following
Many of the errors occur from lack of experience and qualifications, lack of trained supervision, poor recording of the pregnancy progress and previous history, non-appreciation of foetal distress, signs of the latter and again poor documentation.
