The family of a 58 year old Jacksonville, Florida, woman will receive $850,000.00 to settle a wrongful death claim alleging medical malpractice on the part of the Navy Hospital.
The woman went to the hospital because of a severe headache. She was diagnosed with a migraine headache and send home with pain medication. She died from a brain aneurysm days later.
CT scans of her brain taken during that visit showed a major change compared to prior CT scans. The first of two doctors did not compare the CT scan to her prior CT scan, and, thus, did not notice the change. A second doctor did notice the change but did not act urgently to address the problem.
