Doctor Fails to Administer Clotting Factors to Patient with Hemophilia during Colonoscopy

The use of pre-colonoscopy clotting factors in patients with hemophilia or von Willebrand's disease was the primary issue in this case. Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice Attornys Rosen Louik & Perry represented the colonoscopy malpractice claim. Our expert doctor opined that the client's gastroenterologist improperly treated the client during a colonoscopy. The doctor in question should have been administering drugs or clotting factors to minimize the risk of bleeding. Our doctor emphasized that it is imprudent to biopsy body sites that cannot be compressed directly (to stop bleeding) unless one first gives the appropriate clotting factors. The failure to administer pre-colonoscopy clotting factors before the client's colonoscopy departed from accepted standards of medical care. This failure resulted in a second surgical procedure and a ten day hospitalization. This case was settled for $150,000.00.
