A medical malpractice lawsuit ended in victory for it’s California plaintiff. In 2007, Ana Jimenez-Salgado, received the news that cells obtained from a biopsy of breast tissue were cancerous, leading her medical providers at a Los Angeles county hospital to perform a double mastectomy. But when she later went to undergo reconstructive surgery, the hospital pathologists examined the remaining tissue and determined she never had cancer.
She filed a lawsuit and was awarded $198,000 for a grave misdiagnosis. Negligence befell the hospital when they failed to closely examine outside pathology reports, or even perform their own tests to ensure the presence of cancerous cells. And as if removing the woman’s natural breasts for no reason wasn’t enough, they negligently performed the reconstructive surgery.
