Hospital's Failure to Remove Foreign Bodies Caused Woman's Hysterectomy
We filed and settled a case against a hospital that placed cervical dilators in our client but failed to remove all of them. When the hospital finally detected the retained dilators and attempted to surgically remove them, hospital personnel perforated our client's uterus. We argued that our client required a hysterectomy because of the hospital's failure to remove all of the cervical dilators in a timely fashion and because the hospital perforated our client's uterus.
