Jennifer Doe, age 52, came off a plane from Haiti with fever and chills. She was rushed by ambulance to the defendant hospital.
An internist and infectious-disease doctor were assigned. Anti-malaria medication was ordered, but an incorrect type for the strain of malaria in this case. The nursing staff, meanwhile, failed to administer any anti-malaria medication (even the inappropriate kind) for almost 24 hours after it was ordered.
Mrs. Doe died in the hospital of malaria due to lack of anti-malaria treatment. The case was resolved with the hospital and doctors for $2.8 million.
