This case involves a stroke following a visit to the hospital in Montana. The patient had no significant medical history, and had presented to the ER after experiencing discomfort and pain in her chest. In response to the patient’s symptoms a cardiac catheter was placed, with the understanding that additional tests and procedures would be performed. During the catheterization a clot was formed, which induced a stroke. Initially, the treating physicians opted to wait and monitor the patient’s condition rather than address the clot. However, her condition quickly deteriorated, and she was transferred to another part of the hospital where she underwent a procedure to eliminate the clot. The patient was brought to stable condition but left with neurological defects. The plaintiff alleges the catheterization was mishandled, and that the patient should have been transferred earlier for her stroke treatment.
