LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION
Stanford Hospital and Palo Alto Medical Clinic
A $70 million verdict has been found in the lawsuit filed on behalf of the family of 9-year-old Michael Cook. The suit claimed that the Hospital staff gave Michael a standard blood screening test for metabolic disorders when he was only 4 hours old, however in order to detect disorders, the test should not be given for 24 hours. Michael suffered brain damage and developmental disorders due to the fact that his disorder, known as phenylketonuria, or PKU, was not diagnosed immediately, and therefore treatment was delayed.
