You trust your doctor to make you better. When instead you are injured, the consequences can be devastating.
A medical malpractice lawsuit has been filed by a Connecticut woman after the wrong rib was removed during surgery. According to the suit, Deborah Craven was scheduled to have her eighth rib removed due to a lesion that was causing intense pain. The lawsuit alleges that the rib was marked by radiologists with metallic coils and a marking dye meant to avoid confusion. However, after surgery, Craven was still in pain so an x-ray was performed. It appears that despite the precautions, a surgeon-in-training who was allowed to conduct the surgery, removed the wrong rib and left the metal coils inside of her. To add insult to injury, the suit alleges the surgery then tried to cover up his mistake. The lawsuit explains that Dr. Anthony Kim, who did not partake in the surgery, informed Craven of the mistake and scheduled her in for follow-up surgery. However, the doctor who operated, Dr. Ricardo Quarrie, told Craven that the second surgery was necessary because not enough of the rib had been removed during the first surgery. The lawsuit names Yale-New Haven Hospital, as well as Yale Medical Group in Connecticut, Yale University and two physicians as defendants.
