$8.5 million Settlement Jane Doe v. ABC Hospital Anonymous Ohio City
A 10 year old girl was diagnosed with a stomach virus when she really had an appendicitis. She was hospitalized for 4 days where no radiology studies or lab work was done to identify the problem. Her parents kept complaining of her declining health until she arrested from her infection spreading throughout her body. This arrest left her brain damaged and unable to speak, feed herself or take care of herself in any way. The settlement enabled her family to take her home, equip a special house for her needs and provide her with nursing care and future medical care. The family has also invested in unique medical therapy including hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy and potentially stem cell therapy.
