Mother of Five Died After Given Wrong Dosage of Medication
Mother of Five Died After Given Wrong Dosage of Medication -- NY Personal Injury Lawyer Barry Washor 212.406.1700 New York personal injury attorney Barry Washor wants to tell you the sad story of a mother of five children died after minor eye surgery. The husband of the patient came to our office to explain how his wife died and that he believed the hospital was at fault for this tragic accident. After her surgery, the wife contracted a fungal infection and was prescribed a medication to help her recover. On that prescription, the doctor noted that she should be given .1 milligrams of the medication. The resident physician (a doctor in training) went to fill the prescription and misread the numbers, giving the patient 1.0 milligrams. It seems like a simple mistake but this is ten times the ordered dosage and there are obviously serious consequences to preventable mistakes like this one. His failure to read the order properly or ask to confirm it cost this family to be without a mother. We were able to resolve the case for over $10 million dollars, allowing the children to flourish and this family to survive. Watch this video to learn more.
