Child Suffers Permanent Neurological Deficit after Administration of Excessive Sodium

A pharmacist at a hospital made a ten-fold error in the quantity of sodium added to an intravenous solution administered to a nineteen month old child. This error caused the client to suffer an iatrogenic hypernatremia and permanent neurological deficits. Pennsylvania Medical Negligence Lawyers Rosen Louik & Perry represented the victim. Defendants argued that client’s underlying disease had already rendered her neurologically disabled so that this pharmacy error caused no significant damage. This case settled for $275,000.00 and the money was put in trust and used to better the life of the child.
