Wrongful death, delayed blood transfusion (2022-present)

A 35-year-old woman waited more than 35 hours in HIMA Fajardo’s hospital to receive a blood transfusion. She had no previous medical conditions and arrived at the hospital conscious and alert. As precious hours went by, she became weaker and weaker until she lost consciousness and had to be intubated. Less than two hours later, she suffered a myocardial infarction, could not be revived, and was declared dead shortly thereafter. The blood she needed was at the hospital’s internal blood bank the whole time. The family members that survived her retained our law firm, and a complaint was filed in state and federal court against multiple defendants. The federal court case is in advanced discovery stages, while the state court is paralyzed due to HIMA Fajardo’s bankruptcy Chapter 11 procedure.
