The birth of a child should be a wonderful and joyous occasion. But when medical staff does not make the right and clear decisions, lives are at risk. Clear signs that someone is in danger should be noticed and protocols should be followed by medical staff. Medical malpractice creates massive and unnecessary medical problems and struggles. We at Kurzban, Kurzban, Tetzeli, and Pratt P.A, our medical malpractice attorneys, want to discuss a local incident that irrevocably harmed a mother.
When Marites Campano started giving birth, she was taken to Tripler Army Medical Center to deliver her third child. She soon “became clammy and pale” and had “low blood pressure.” The doctors ignored the signs of infection and she gave birth to her baby girl.
But her infection went ignored.
The court documents state that she was in constant pain and without a diagnosis or antibiotic treatment, her condition deteriorated and as a result of the medical staff’s negligence, she went into sepsis.
As a result, she lost both of her kidneys at the age of 37.
The government admitted the liability and was awarded $18.5 million dollars to cover her medical care she will need for the rest of her life.
We expect when we go into a hospital that we will receive care and attention, not negligence and harm.
