Miami Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Mercy Hospital may not have a Consumer Report rating, but it certainly has a history of medical malpractice. In a case that yielded what was once the largest verdict for medical malpractice in Florida, a jury awarded $7.2 million to the family of a 22-year-old man who was left brain dead after a routine operation for a broken leg. The hospital and anesthesiologist failed to properly monitor their patient during his surgery, leading to the irreversible damage done to his brain.
In another multi-million dollar case, a family’s infant girl suffered a permanent brain injury during childbirth. The mother, who was under the care of Mercy Hospital’s labor and delivery nurses, was administered Pitocin, which is commonly used to induce labor. However, when progress was not made by the next morning, they administered more of the drug, causing hyper stimulation. Ultimately, the baby had to be delivered via a cesarean section. Following the delivery, the infant was not breathing and needed to be revived. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and developmental delay, which will necessitate care for the rest of her life.
