In some instances, the doctors or nursing staff fail to timely recognize this distress and this can cause significant harm. The failure to recognize distress can be the result of many reasons, ranging from an understaffed neonatal department or simply just negligence in failing to properly monitor the baby. When this happens, the doctors and hospital can be subject to a medical malpractice lawsuit.
