Our stroke misdiagnosis medical malpractice lawyers recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against Mt. Clemens General Hospital for failing to timely diagnose a stroke. The suit was brought by a 66 year old woman who was evaluated by the nursing staff with symptoms that put her at a high risk for stroke. These symptoms included an elevated blood pressure and other abnormal vital signs.
The nursing staff failed to properly notify a physician of their findings as required by the standard of care. As a result in this delay, the patient sustained a massive stroke while in the intensive care unit (ICU) at the hospital. The patient now suffers from right hemiplegia and cannot use her right arm or leg and has significant speech deficits.
The medical negligence lawsuit was filed in the Macomb County Circuit Court in Mount Clemens, Michigan. The suit seeks damages for the pain and suffering that the patient has endured and will continue to endure the rest of her life. It also seeks economic losses for lost wages, loss of household services, the cost of durable medical equipment, the need for attendant care, and medical bills have been and will be incurred in the future as a result of the alleged malpractice. No trial date has been set by the court.
