When medical malpractice includes provision of inadequate care and the inability to diagnose, a Missouri patient may suffer medical emergency that results in fatality. The parents of a deceased young woman recently filed a lawsuit against a hospital for what they believe was medical malpractice that lead to the death of their daughter. They have accused the medical facility of failure to provide adequate care resulting in fatal brain and liver problems.
The young woman first visited the emergency room independently with complaints of illness that had been chronic for two weeks. Symptoms included abdominal pain and vomiting. A physician discovered inflammation of her liver through an examination, and as her treatment continued, she was transferred to ICU.
