This case involves a 58-year-old female patient with a history of heart problems and alcoholism. The patient had developed alcoholism in her early fifties following the death of her son. One evening, the patient drank to the point of falling unconscious. She was taken to the emergency room and was sent to a rehabilitation center for a 12-hour alcohol hold. While in the rehabilitation center, the patient was not administered her prescription heart medication by the physician responsible for observing her. She was left unattended for over an hour before she was found unconscious on the floor. Resuscitation attempts were made, but the patient ultimately passed away. It was alleged that the patient died as a result of not receiving her prescription medication. A cardiologist was sought to review the records and determine the cause of death.
