That is mindblowing. I would say your Dr, nurses, and anyone present should give you all the answers you can ask. All I know about ubillical cord injuries is the risk for an increase in infection in that area. The fall alone could cause injury. Is this your baby? I hope it all works out.

Could you elaborate a little more?  What exactly happened?  Did the doctor drop the baby on the floor at birth?  Did the baby strike it's head?  How quickly did they stop the bleeding from the cord?  Did they do a blood count on the baby?

Temperature instability is a transient, common problem that may have had nothing to do with what happened.  The cephalohematoma could have been the result of the fall, or happens quite often during birth.
