Patient Dies Of Gastrointestinal Bleeding Due To Delayed Blood Transfusion

Our client presented to the emergency room after experiencing continued rectal bleeding. While in the hospital, the client's hemoglobin progressively declined, indicative of an internal bleed that required blood transfusions which were ordered. The hospital blood bank contacted a regional blood bank and were told the bank needed to find the correct blood for the client and would have it delivered in about 6 hours. However, a series of miscommunications at the hospital left doctors and nursing staff unaware of this message and the client continued to internally bleed during this time. The client ultimately went into hypovolemic shock caused by her gastrointestinal bleed and died as a result. She was 74 at the time of her death. Medical malpractice Pittsburgh attorneys at Rosen Louik & Perry argued on behalf of the client's family. This case settled for $650,000.00.
