A hospital in Glenbrook, Illinois and five of its doctors are being sued in a medical malpractice case by a victim’s family after the death of their family member.
A 56-year-old man went to the hospital after developing an infection in his hip, but after he underwent surgery for the infection, he suffered from kidney failure. The kidney failure caused the man to undergo dialysis, but the man’s body began to accumulate liquid.
The suit is claiming that the doctors at the hospital failed to watch over the man adequately which caused his body to accumulate to much liquid. The suit claims that the doctors noticed the build up and continued to give him blood without dialysis and which caused him to go into cardiac arrest.
Medical malpractice cases can have traumatizing effects on all involved, our thoughts are with the family of the victim.
