David Ward and Pankaj “PK”Shere won a defense verdict for an Emergency Medicine Physician and an Emergency Department Physician Assistant. The case alleged that healthcare providers failed to diagnose an obstructed bowel and instead discharged the patient from the hospital with a diagnosis of gastritis. The patient returned to the hospital several hours later, was diagnosed with obstructed bowel disease and was emergently sent to surgery. As a result in the delay, plaintiff alleged she required three additional surgeries, developed sepsis, and incurred over a million dollars in medical expenses.
