Holding Obstetricians Accountable to Professional Standards
The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has set out specific rules and regulations that obstetricians are expected to follow during childbirth.
These professional standards are intended to help avoid serious complications, such as:
- Oxygen deprivation – A number of factors can contribute to oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery. Obstetricians and hospitals are responsible for identifying possible oxygen deprivation through fetal monitoring and considering interventions such as cesarean sections (C-sections). Failure to do so may result in serious conditions like cerebral palsy.
- Cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD) – When babies are too big to be delivered normally through the birth canal, they can end up suffering brachial plexus dystocia, which can result in Erb’s palsy. Obstetricians are responsible for taking accurate measurements at the beginning of the delivery process so they can prevent this from happening.
- Injuries to mothers – Maternal injuries that frequently occur during labor and delivery include vaginal tears, fissures, infections, and anesthetic reactions. Obstetricians are responsible for avoiding these injuries whenever possible, identifying them when they have occurred and treating them promptly and effectively.
