For every 1,000 babies born in the United States each year, between six and seven will suffer a birth injury. Mild birth injuries include scratches and bruises while severe birth injuries include spinal cord injury, brain damage, fractures, dystocia, paralysis, erb's palsy and cerebral palsy.
Statistics also show that males are at a higher rate to suffer a birth injury than females and injuries occur more frequently in non-profit hospitals than for-profit hospitals. Additionally, statistics also show that more birth injuries occur in large hospitals (hospitals with over 300 beds) than small hospitals (hospitals with less than 100 beds).
