Continued Morphine Administration Leaves Patient with Severe Mental & Neurological Problems

Oxygen and morphine were administered to our client following a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo oophorectomy. Later that same night, the client was found to be tachycardic with a blood pressure of 91/50. The client continued to receive morphine up to 8mg per hour. Early the next morning, the client was unresponsive and severely hypoxemic. She was resuscitated and life-flighted to a nearby hospital. The client suffered a severe hypoxic-anoxic encephalopathy as well as other severe, permanent mental and neurological problems as a result of the continued morphine administration. The case was settled for $3,000,000.00.
