$2.5 Million Settlement Ends Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

Hospital doctors have settled a medical malpractice lawsuit filed with a couple for $2.5 million. The victim was treated for dehydration which was the result of a gastrointestinal-related condition. The medical malpractice lawsuit claims doctors infused her with nutritional supplements through an IV in her subclavian artery, just below the collarbone, instead of the subclavian vein, where it was supposed to go. The medical malpractice lawsuit alleges that the erroneous placement caused fatty blockages to travel to her brain for five consecutive days which caused severe and debilitating stokes and neurological and cognitive devastation. The victim is now mentally and physically handicapped. The lawsuit alleged that the strokes were the result of improper medical care. Avoidable medical error can drastically change a person’s life.
