This case involves a 37-year-old female carpenter who suffered a severe hand injury. The carpenter was using a table saw in her studio to cut wood for a set of dining room furniture. While using the saw, she severed her index and middle finger. She presented to the hospital but they were not able to reattach the fingers. As a result, the carpenter suffered permanent neurological damage and lost the severed fingers. An orthopedic surgeon was sought to discuss whether or not the hospital rendered the appropriate care.
