Medical Malpractice

WRSH Partner, Phil Russotti, obtained a $900,000 settlement for our client, a wife and mother in her early 40's. We contended that the Defendants failed to provide glucose monitoring for our client who was receiving corticosteroids. Plaintiff underwent surgery for a benign tumor on a facial nerve and at the time of discharge from the hospital, she was taking Decadron, a corticosteroid that has the tendency to raise blood glucose levels. We argued that the Defendants failed to order or recommend glucose testing in conjunction with the administration of Decadron, resulting in diabetic ketoacidosis and prolonged hospitalization. We were able to settle prior to the scheduled trial date.
