It is reasonable to expect that when we go to a medical facility that we will be treated well and actually cared for, but sadly, this is not always how things play out. For one Louisiana man, he is claiming that the negligence and poor care he received while undergoing a routine dialysis treatment has left him in a far worse state than he was when he went in for the treatment.
The man’s complaint alleges that he had gone in for a standard dialysis treatment and wa in the middle of the process when a staff member ordered him to be taken off of the dialysis machine prior to the completion of the treatment. In the wake of this event, the man claims that his health took a sharp decline, leaving him extremely weakened and ultimately causing him to require hospitalization and further intensive dialysis treatment under the care of another healthcare provider.
The man is seeking to hold both the initial dialysis provider and its insurance provider responsible for this injury, claiming that even after the staff member had already prematurely removed him from this vital treatment, the staff member further harmed his care by inferring to another provider that he should not be accepted for treatment because he was prone to violence. The man is seeking $2 million in damages, plus various fees.
