Maryland medical malpractice attorney Renee Boston talks about how sepsis and infection resulted from a C-Section. The woman was almost 9 months pregnant at the time doctors induced her pregnancy in the hospital. During the time leading up to her induction, she said she was never examined by a doctor at the hospital. On the second day of labor, her amniotic sac ruptured and throughout the following twenty-four hours, she was never seen by a doctor.
She was then scheduled for a C- Section due to failed progression of normal vaginal labor. The patient stated that she was taken to the operating room and aseptic procedures were not followed. While the patient was in recovery, she developed severe burning during urination. Her doctor advised her that she had a bladder infection and she was given medication to treat the bladder infection.
The next day she was discharged from the hospital. A week later, she begin to feel pelvic pain along with severe pain during urination. She also had a higher frequency of urination. The patient was taken to the emergency room where she was diagnosed with septic pelvic thrombophlebitis.
