3.75 Million – Hospital Negligence Sepsis

The client was a vital 65-year-old female who presented to the defendant ER and Dr with new-onset Flank pain.  She was correctly diagnosed with a large Kidney stone and because of concerning lab tests was admitted for possible infected stone. Appropriate broad-spectrum antibiotics were started but the Hospital and Drs dropped the ball overnight when they failed to intervene when there was clear evidence of progression to sepsis.  As a result, the patient’s condition progressed to severe septic shock requiring massive use of beta-blockers which resulted in severe Necrosis and the need for multiple amputations of bilateral fingers and toes.
