There are five stages of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Each retinopathy of prematurity stage refers to the severity of the disease. ROP Stage 1 is the least aggressive stage, whereas Stage 5 of the condition indicates total detachment of the retinas. Our birth injury attorneys provide the following videos about retinopathy of prematurity stages and what happens as the disease progresses.
If medical professionals fail to detect, monitor or treat retinopathy of prematurity in a timely and proper manner, this medical negligence may cause ROP blindness in premature newborns. However, ROP blindness is more than likely preventable when doctors and hospitals provide reasonable care. Families of blind preemies with retinopathy of prematurity have legal rights. Call our birth injury attorneys today to uphold these rights.
