Nurse Misses Port during Chemotherapy Causing Disfigurement

This 63-year old client was admitted into the hospital for chest pain, back pain, shortness of breath, ongoing night sweats and significant weight loss. She was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease. During the administration of chemotherapeutic drugs, a nurse missed the port used for infusion of the drugs. After infiltration, our client experienced severe pain and a burning sensation in the chest. Regrettably, the chemo infiltrated into her breast tissue causing severe loss of breast tissue. This caused horrible disfigurement of her breast. Client contacted the Pittsburgh medical malpractice attorneys at Rosen Louik & Perry to litigate her claim. The case settled for $950,000.00.
