Medical Malpractice

A 50-year-old woman went in for a routine colonoscopy and complained of pain and nausea post procedure. The same-day surgery center in a major hospital discharged her with limited instructions. She became very ill during the night, called an ambulance and returned to the hospital. She sustained a perforated colon during the procedure, and although a perforation is a risk of any colonoscopy procedure, KGG argued that the hospital was negligent in not recognizing the post procedure symptoms. By discharging her, the hospital delayed her healthy recovery.

A Bergen County jury sided with the injured woman and awarded significant financial compensation based on the argument by Barry Kantrowitz that the woman could have avoided her pain, suffering and emotional distress if the hospital staff had properly recognized the patient’s symptoms before sending her home.
