Miami Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Naples Community Hospital
Naples Community Hospital has a Consumer Report rating of 59/100, with low ratings for communication about drug information, communication about hospital discharge, avoiding surgical site infections, avoiding MRSA infections, and help from hospital staff. Consequently, Naples Community Hospital has also had incidents of medical malpractice. For example, in 2005, 61-year-old S.M. called 911, complaining of shortness of breath and severe back pain. When she arrived at the hospital, the doctors did not consider her case an emergency. Ms. M.’s condition continued to deteriorate until, six days later, she lost her ability to walk.
Ms. M. alleged that she suffered from progressive neurological deterioration following her admittance to Naples Community Hospital. Two days after she lost the ability to walk, a second MRI revealed a large epidural abscess on her spine. Emergency decompressive surgery was performed, allowing her to regain some minimal motion in her arms and some feeling in two of her toes. Ms. M. now suffers from quadriparesis and has very limited motion.
When hospital staff make egregious mistakes such as this, they should be held accountable for their actions. If you or someone you love has suffered injuries or died as a result of medical malpractice, you have a right to seek compensation.
