Burt Legal Files Lawsuit against Barlow Respiratory Hospital for Wrongful Death, Medical Malpractice, and Elder Abuse.

The Law Office of Joshua A. Burt filed a lawsuit today against Barlow Respiratory Hospital for wrongful death, medical malpractice, elder abuse, and related causes of action.  The complaint alleges that Barlow Respiratory Hospital ignored or failed to respond to a patient who was in severe heart distress for over six hours. The complaint further alleges that, during these six hours, the patient suffered dozens of ventricular fibrillation (vfib) and ventricular tachycardia (vtach) that Barlow’s staff either ignored or were not present to monitor in gross violation of the standard of care. The complaint also contends that Barlow intentionally understaffed its facility, causing the death of the patient, in order to save money.  Plaintiff is seeking compensatory damages and punitive damages.
