A 10-year-old girl was injured as she descended some steps at her home, resulting in an injury to the growth plate in her hip which was not diagnosed at the time of her emergency room visit at an area hospital. Initially, the child’s symptoms at the ER involved her lower extremity and ankle, not the injured hip.
Experts in the field of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Orthopedics were asked to review the case on our behalf. As a result, it was discovered that the standard of care in initially treating the child’s injury required an X-ray of her hip, even though she initially had no hip pain. It was further the opinion of these experts that had the X-ray been taken while the child was at the emergency room it would have diagnosed the hip fracture and the child would not have been permitted to bear weight on her leg until it was repaired. Instead, the child was permitted to ambulate on the fractured hip, causing permanent injury to the growth plate.
