$1.35 Million Settlement : Hospital Pays For Negligent Post-Surgical Care

After undergoing a significant spinal surgery, the hospital nursing staff failed to properly monitor a patient as to avoid predicable bad outcomes. One day after surgery, while recuperating, our client was feeling better but was very tired. In the late afternoon, he fell asleep. Rather than monitor his condition, the nurses simply thought he was resting. Unfortunately, our client was not resting, but had suffered a minor stoke and was in kidney failure due to his blood pressure dropping from the anesthesia. A lawsuit was started and our expert showed multiple supervisory failures by the hospital staff. The case was ultimately settled for $1,350,000 by Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein together with co-counsel.
