This case involves a young small business owner with a history of alcohol abuse who had been checked into a rehabilitation clinic. One night during her first week at the clinic, the patient developed severe difficulty breathing and was immediately taken to the hospital. At the hospital, the patient was given a psychoactive drug in the presence of a representative from the rehabilitation facility. The next day, the hospital administered the patient’s dose of medication and the patient returned to the rehabilitation facility. It was alleged that the hospital did not communicate to the rehabilitation facility staff that the patient’s daily dose of medication had already been administered. Upon the patient’s return, the staff of the rehabilitation facility gave her an additional dose of medication. The patient began slurring her speech and convulsing, but the staff allegedly did nothing to help the patient. She fell into a coma and passed away shortly thereafter. An expert in addiction medicine was sought to discuss the standard of care for administering outside medication to rehabilitation patients.
