A Washington medical center has been awarded $6.6 million in damages in a case involving contaminated medical scopes. Virginia Mason Medical Center filed suit against scope-maker Olympus Corp. after a deadly superbug outbreak occurred at the hospital. The hospital, in turn, was told to pay $1 million to a deceased patient’s family, who filed suit over the fatality. Jurors in King County Superior Court did side with Olympus on Monday by rejecting claims that the company’s flagship TJF-Q180V duodenoscope was unsafe as designed.

There have been no incidents reported in connection with the recall.

The family of a soldier from Fort Campbell who was killed in a car crash has filed a lawsuit over his death. The 21-year-old man was killed when he was struck by a car on Highway 41A in Pleasant View, Tennessee. The soldier was at a party the night of the incident prior to his death, reports indicate. At about 4:00 am, he was struck by an 18-year-old woman driving down the highway. The driver claimed the man came out onto the road “from out of nowhere, suddenly” moving toward her vehicle.

Family of Patient Who Refused Blood Transfusion Cannot File Suit
spacer image
A Pennsylvania appeals court has ruled that the family of a woman who died after refusing blood transfusions cannot filed suit against the hospital that treated her. Superior Court Judge Jacqueline O. Shogan ruled that the patient's family will not be able to file suit against Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia. The patient, a Jehovah's Witness missionary, died after giving birth at the hospital and refusing blood transfusions. The woman chose Hahnemann because of its "bloodless medicine" program for patients who won't agree to having blood transfusions, however, complications during her delivery made it necessary for her to have a blood transfusion to save her life.
