My Most Memorable CLNC® Case

My Most Memorable CLNC® Case: My Compassion Helped Settle the Case for $2.5 Million Dollars

My most memorable case involved a 21-year-old Portuguese speaking woman who was about to have her second child. During the C-section closure, the patient sustained an injury to her bladder which resulted in the development of a vesicouterine fistula and vesicovaginal fistula. She suffered for five days without being able to communicate her needs, pain or fear to the medical staff. She was eventually transferred to a tertiary care hospital but had to undergo a hysterectomy to repair the injury to her bladder. The failure to recognize the injury lasted five days.

My Most Memorable CLNC® Case: I Saved an RN from Going to Trial Based on a Physician’s Misdiagnosis

After reviewing more than 800 medical malpractice cases, one case is most memorable. This case involves a 36-year-old patient who presented to the emergency department (ED) with a chief complaint of a neck injury after a fall from a boat. The RN defendant cared for the patient for a brief period of time in the ED just prior to transfer to a medical nursing unit. The patient was deemed stable by the ED physician prior to transfer. Early the next morning the patient was diagnosed with an acute vertebral artery dissection, locked in syndrome and quadriplegia. The RN who cared for the patient briefly in the ED was alleged to have failed to diagnose her neurological condition.
