Failure to diagnose and treat preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is pregnancy-induced hypertension. Symptoms include elevated blood pressure, swelling and protein in urine. When a pregnant mother complains of these symptoms, standard of care usually suggests that the physician order lab evaluations to determine if she does have preeclampsia. When left untreated or when the wrong medication is administered, the result can be the death of the mother and fetus.
