7 Million Dollar Settlement with Anonymous Central KY Hospital
A single, 30 year old man underwent a colon resection for Crohn’s disease. Post-operatively, he developed complications that were not recognized by the hospital staff until he suffered a cardiac arrest. He was successfully resuscitated, but suffered hypoxic brain damage during the arrest. As a result of the brain damage, he is a quadriplegic and will require 24 hour care for the remainder of his life.
