Summary

Medical malpractice jury trial, failure to diagnose.

The decedent suffered from right ventricular dysfunction, and she eventually died of right ventricular failure. According to the plaintiff, the decedent's condition could have been and should have been easily diagnosed with an echocardiogram during her 20 hours in the intensive care unit (ICU), and if diagnosed and followed the condition could have been resolved with thrombolytic therapy.

The defense asserted that the patient was stable, and even improving, until moments before her collapse, and never met the critical care guidelines for hemodynamic instability or shock, and therefore the standard of care did not require thrombolytic therapy.

The jury found in favor of the plaintiff and awarded $145K in damages.
