Plaintiff's Counsel: William S. Jacobson
Hospital Pays $500,000 for Vestibular Dysfunction Caused by Overdose of Antibiotics
Plaintiff was a 60 year old woman, who was hospitalized for angioplasty and got an infection for which she received IV Gentamicin for four days. Plaintiff claimed that the dose was calculated improperly i.e. based on ideal body weight rather than actual body weight. The plaintiff sustained vestibular dysfunction and diminished hearing due to Gentamicin overdose. This resulted in vertigo and imbalance requiring the use of a cane.
