In 2003, due to a medical error, a 46 year-old Arizona woman was left in a coma. The medical malpractice lawsuit has finally resulted in a $12 million jury award for the victim’s family. According to the lawsuit, the patient went to the emergency room complaining of pain. She was given the drug Profilnine. But two hours later, she suffered blood clots and cardiac arrest. The patient was given a clot-busting drug, returning her heart rate to normal and improving her oxygen levels. However, she never regained consciousness and now remains in a persistent vegetative state, requiring around-the-clock care. Attorneys for the named defendants argued that the plaintiff did not give the hospital an accurate medical history when she was admitted, and they plan to appeal the jury decision.
