Woman Claims She Was Burned During Childhood Surgery

A woman blames her third degree burns on the medical negligence of doctors at a children’s hospital before she went into surgery. A medical malpractice attorney has filed a lawsuit against the hospital on her behalf. The woman claims she became a patient in 2002 for surgery to treat her hyperparathyroidism. During the surgery, she received third-degree burns when doctors negligently allowed heat or a hot object to burn her back. She also claimed they failed to properly supervise her preparation for the surgery. The doctor at the hospital failed to guide his assistants in the proper placement of surgical devices to avoid the burning. Since the incident, she has been forced to endure additional surgeries and suffered disfigurement. This type of medical negligence will have a life long effect on the woman.
