A hospital will be defending itself in a hospital negligence medical malpractice lawsuit beginning today, claims an article. The hospital was warned that one of their surgeons was a “danger to patients” but allowed the surgeon to continue performing surgeries. One of the surgeon’s last surgeries resulted in a woman’s death. The woman’s personal physician had written to the hospital explicitly stating that this young surgeon was a threat. The woman’s estate has already settled with the surgeon for medical malpractice. The surgeon was later captured for robbing a bank and was sentenced to 51 months in prison.
