Miami Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Mease Countryside Hospital
Mease Countryside Hospital has a Consumer Report rating of 57/100, with low ratings on communication about drug information and appropriate use of abdominal scanning. With such a low rating, it is not surprising that this facility has had legal issues in the past. In 2012, the parents of a 12-year-old girl filed a lawsuit against Mease Countryside Hospital and the medical professionals who performed the child’s tonsillectomy, claiming that the surgical team made a series of mistakes that led to her death. During surgery, complications began to arise, and the little girl developed pulmonary edema, and went into cardiac arrests. She died two days later.
The lawsuit alleged that the team continued the surgery despite the complications that began almost immediate after they started. They neglected to heed any of the warning signs, including the bloody froth that came up the breathing tube as they removed her right tonsil. Additionally, the drugs they administered were a dangerous mix and the little girl was too young for the dosages given.
Mistakes like this are unacceptable and those responsible should be held accountable for negligently harming their patients, which sometimes leads to their loss of life, as was the case with the little girl. If you or someone you love has been injured or died at the hands of medical negligence, it is your right to pursue compensation and justice.
