Results

A middle-aged woman was in a Broward County hospital recovering from a brain aneurysm. While recovering in her hospital room, she grew agitated and began pulling on the tracheostomy tube connected to her neck. The nurse on duty documented that she was pulling at her tubes six different times in 24 hours, and yet did nothing to prevent her from being able to dismantle the tubes.

When the nurse next arrived for a routine check-in, the patient was found on the floor, lifeless, with all tubes, monitors, IVs and clothing removed from her body. This incident caused her to suffer a hypoxic brain injury. She was expected to make a full recovery after the brain aneurysm, but the hypoxic brain injury she suffered from this event caused massive damage. Now, she is unable to walk or talk and needs 24-hour nursing care for the rest of her life. The victim and her husband sued the hospital. Prior to trial, GRYC was able to successfully negotiate an eight-figure settlement.
