This case involves a middle aged female with a medical history of several chronic conditions, including high blood pressure, stomach ulcers, and a restricted diet. She presented to her general practitioner for an appointment complaining of sudden onset vomiting and dizziness. She also displayed an unsteady gait at the time she was seen by the doctor. After a standard physical examination, the doctor diagnosed her with an infection and sent her home with instructions to follow up in a week if symptoms did not improve. No additional testing or lab studies were done by the doctor at the time. Over the next few hours the patient’s symptoms continued to get worse, until eventually the patient’s son called an ambulance and the patient was transported to the ER. The patient was waiting to see the doctor in the hospital for about an hour when she suddenly became blind in both eyes. Eventually, it was determined that she had suffered a stroke that had caused her initial symptoms before she saw her primary care physician, and that she may have suffered a subsequent stroke or strokes after she had been sent home following her appointment. The patient was severely and permanently injured by the alleged delay in treatment, is permanently blind, and will require ongoing care for the rest of her life.
