Hospital Loses Polyp Resulting in Delayed Diagnosis of Cancer
Plaintiff had a polyp removed from her true vocal chords which was lost by the defendant hospital. Ultimately, a carcinoma developed on her false vocal chords. Defendant argued that the polyp bore no relation to the cancer which developed and that plaintiff was negligent in failing to follow up despite repeated requests by the hospital and her own physician.
