Failure to Properly Monitor Patient Results in Respiratory Arrest and Death

Our client, 51-years old, was in very bad health and was dependent on mechanical ventilation for breathing, presented to a hospital for high temperature and symptoms of infection. During client’s stay in the hospital, nursing staff realized that when client positioned her bed at a 90 degree angle client’s ventilator was in danger of being disconnected and the bed required repositioning. However, doctors and nursing staff failed to properly monitor client, and the ventilator indeed became disconnected, causing client to suffer respiratory arrest and die a short time later. Pittsburgh Rosen Louik & Perry filed medical negligence claim for client’s family. The case settled for $300,000.00.
