Improperly Placed Gastronomy Tube Leads to Severe Health Conditions

Our client needed his percutaneous endoscopic gastronomy tube (PEG tube) replaced. A new PEG tube was improperly placed in the client's peritoneal cavity rather than his stomach, causing extensive peritonitis and free air. A second operation was needed to correct the misplaced PEG tube. As a result of the doctor's negligence in misplacing the tube, the client developed numerous, severe health conditions including, MRSA, VRE of his G tube, multiple episodes of C. Diff, chronic constipation, tube feeding, aphagia, and malnutrition. The case settled for $750,000.00.
