This case involves a female patient with a past medical history of diabetes who was brought to the hospital via ambulance following a forklift accident at her workplace. The patient was diagnosed with a severe leg fracture, and doctors elected to perform an open fixation procedure to repair the fracture. Surgery was performed on the same day that the patient was brought in to the emergency room. During the procedure, the patient’s blood sugar dropped dramatically, and the patient became severely hypoglycemic while recovering from anesthesia. The patient eventually slipped into a hypoglycemic coma and suffered significant brain damage.
