Court: Cuyahoga County Common Pleas
Failure to Follow Up on Abnormal PAP Results in Hysterectomy
A pap smear had been performed with an abnormal lab finding of actinomyces. At that time, plaintiff, had an IUD. The physician, and physician’s assistant allegedly did not receive copies of this abnormal result and therefore, did not advise the plaintiff that she would need a removal of the IUD and antibiotic therapy. Nine months later, as a direct and proxiate result of the defendant’s failure, a massive infection ensued resulting in a total hysterectomy and other complications.
