Family of Late Student Sues Harvard

The family of a former Harvard student who committed suicide two years ago has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the university and two medical professionals at the school’s health services. The young man was a 19-year-old sophomore when he died. A nurse practitioner prescribed the victim a mixture of medicines, some of which where known to increase the risk of suicide. The supervising doctor committed medical malpractice by failing to properly monitor the nurse practitioner who prescribed the drugs. The man’s father contends that his son did not have prior health problems. Psychiatric malpractice is a common form of medical malpractice.
