Medical negligence claims after dentures lodged in man’s throat 5/6

| Jan 26, 2015 | Uncategorized

On behalf of Kammholz Law PLLC posted in Medical Malpractice on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.

A medical center where a man died early in 2009 is now facing a lawsuit brought by the deceased’s family. They claim that medical negligence caused the death of their loved one. Most New York patients seek medical care that will stabilize or improve their condition, rather than result in personal injury or death. If physicians, their assistants or nursing staff fail to provide an appropriate standard of care, medical malpractice lawsuits my follow. When a man in another state suffered constipation and vomiting, along with nausea and abdominal pain, he reported to a medical center. The diagnosis was an obstruction in his bowel and a ventral hernia. Surgery was required to rectify the problem. In preparation for the surgery a few days later, the anesthesiologist prepared his report but allegedly made no mention of the dentures worn by the patient. The surgery purportedly went ahead without the dentures being removed. Barely two days after a successful surgery, the man was found unresponsive. He had apparently suffered a stroke, and following this diagnosis, a nurse noticed the man was having difficulty breathing and reportedly discovered the dentures wedged in his throat. It was allegedly determined that the struggle for air brought about the stroke, and complications after the stroke caused kidney failure. The man died about a month after the surgical procedure. The hospital and its staff have been accused of medical malpractice and wrongful death by the victim’s family. Families in New York who have lost loved ones through the suspected medical negligence of physicians or hospital staff retain the right to initiate and litigate wrongful death claims in a civil court. Although this will not ease their heartache and trauma after such a tragedy, any monetary award achieved by way of a successful claim may help cover the financial damages sustained as a result.
