HUNTINGTON – A Cabell County woman alleges she had to be admitted to a hospital's intensive care unit after given an excessive dose of insulin by staff.
Sandra S. Saunders filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Cabell Huntington Hospital Inc. alleging medical liability.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 2, 2016, she was a patient at defendant's hospital when she received an excessive dose of insulin that resulted in severe and refractory hypoglycemia and loss of consciousness. She alleges she required intubation, admission to the intensive care unit and maintenance on a ventilator. She sustained significant hospital and medical expenses and other economic losses.
The plaintiff holds Cabell Huntington Hospital Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to exercise the highest degree of care, learning and skill required of a prudent health care provider.
The plaintiff seeks all damages in an amount that is fair and reasonable, plus interest, costs and any further relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by William A. Davis of Butler, Cincione & Dicuccio in Columbus, Ohio. The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul T. Farrell.
