Radiation Overdose Leads To Lawsuit
A patient who allegedly received an overdose of radiation during a CT scan at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has filed a lawsuit against the hospital and General Electric Healthcare, maker of the scanner.
The lawsuit claims negligence on the part of the hospital and the manufacturer in regards to performing the scans. The equipment error went undetected for 1½ years and involved 206 patients who received eight times the normal dose of radiation.
In addition to negligence, the lawsuit alleges medical malpractice, product liability, and breach of warranty.
