John Doe, a 35-year-old man, was admitted to Broward General Medical Center to have a pacemaker implanted. The first procedure was unsuccessful, and he was scheduled for the procedure again the next day. Overnight, his respiratory condition deteriorated but nonetheless he was taken into surgery the next day. He suffered respiratory failure and died 17 days later. John left behind a wife and a 5-year-old daughter.
The Estate of Mr. Doe tried the wrongful death suit against the Anesco anesthesiology group and two of the group’s anesthesiologists.
A jury brought a verdict in favor of the plaintiff and awarded the estate a judgment of approximately $4.6 million.
