Man Released Early from Hospital Receives $19M Settlement

This is a settlement for the Medical Malpractice lawsuit.

Philadelphia, PA: A man admitted to Temple University Hospital for three severe hypoglycemic episodes over two days that left him with permanent brain damage, has been awarded $19 million in settlement of his medical malpractice lawsuit.

After having been released from hospital without a diagnosis or explanation as to why he was suffering from hypoglycemia, Ronald S. Campbell was admitted and discharged for the last time at 1:04 am, a time when, his family maintained in their lawsuit, hospital staff knew that Campbell's family would be asleep and so not able to monitor his condition.

In their defense, the hospital said it met the standard of care in restoring Campbell's blood sugar to a stable level and noted that he had been previously noncompliant with insulin instructions.
