CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT – NEGLIGENT CHANGE IN BLOOD THINNING MEDICATION

A 27 year old woman who had previously suffered a stroke was undergoing a change in her blood thinning medication. The conversion to heparin had not been appropriately administered by her Kaiser physician. Blood test results had not been documented, monitoring was erratic and there had not been consultations with her cardiologist. She suffered a heart attack when the Kaiser physicians sent her home after she had been to the hospital complaining of pain in her back and shortness of breath. Our medical experts were able to demonstrate the medical malpractice and we recovered a substantial confidential settlement.
