$1.2 Million Awarded To Hospital Burn Victim
A 78-year-old woman, who suffered from burns and permanent scars after a medical device was placed too near her supplementary oxygen and later exploded, has been awarded $1.2 million by a Macomb County, Michigan jury.
The woman was being treated at Henry Ford Macomb Hospital for a heart attack when she fell out of bed and suffered facial fractures and a deep cut over her eye. The attorneys argued that the injuries resulted from a hospital resident’s actions in October 2007.
Hospital representatives said in a statement that they respect the jury’s verdict and extended sympathy to the patient and her family.
