Naval Medical Center faces $5 million medical malpractice lawsuit

The husband of a 23 year-old woman who died at the Naval Medical Center has filed a $5 million medical malpractice lawsuit and wrongful death lawsuit against the Naval Medical Center claiming medical staff misdiagnosed a urinary tract infection that led to the victim’s death. The 23 year-old woman died of heart failure three days after she was sent home from the Medical Center with a diagnosis of muscle spasms. The couple had been married just five months before the woman’s death.

When the woman went to the Medical Center, a nurse ordered a urinalysis and a pregnancy test. A physician’s assistant saw the victim and diagnosed her with muscle spasms. The physician’s assistant then discharged her without waiting for the results of the urine test.
