Class Action Medical Malpractice Filed Regarding Stents

Medical malpractice attorneys have filed a class action lawsuit against a hospital after it informed more than 350 patients that they may have received unnecessary heart stents. The hospital had recently sent letters to the patients informing them that they may have received stents even though their arteries were not in fact clogged enough that they would need such a stent. The class-action lawyers state that the stents were implemented because of their $10,000 procedure costs. The hospital did not comment on the medical malpractice lawsuit.. Surgeries should only be performed if they are in the interest of the patient. To read into the class-action lawsuit, please click the link.
