$4.25M settlement for failure to treat pre-eclampsia resulting in the death of twins before birth

August 26, 2016

A judge refused to seal the records of a $4.25 million medical malpractice settlement.  Judge Terrence Nealon rejected a defense request to keep the settlement secret, finding that the public’s right to know outweighed concerns defense attorneys raised that release of the information would discourage hospitals and physicians from settling malpractice cases in the future.  The settlement resolved a 2011 lawsuit Jo Ann Page filed against Moses Taylor Hospital as well as individual doctors in connection with the March 2, 2009, death of her twins, Kylee and Chloe.  The lawsuit alleged doctors failed to properly monitor Ms. Page for preeclampsia — a serious medical condition characterized by high blood pressure. Ms. Page suffered a seizure, which caused the placenta to detach from her uterus. The babies, who were at 33.4 weeks’ gestation, were stillborn.
