In this case, the plaintiff from Minnesota drove himself to the ER with complaints of pain brought on by physical activity. The emergency room doctor had administered a test which was indicative of insufficient blood flow to the heart. The treating physician then ordered a cardiac monitor, as well as additional tests. These initial tests appeared to be normal. The patient was placed on a heart monitor, however the monitor was disconnected for some period of time during the patient’s admission, despite continuous cardiac monitoring being advised for his condition. Subsequent tests showed alarming findings, however the treating physician was not made aware of these findings. Another test revealed an acute heart attack. The patient ultimately survived, but was left with diminished cardiac function.
