Massachusetts: Operating Room Fall Lawsuit Settles for $900,000

From The Boston Globe — Two years to the day after a women's tragic fall from an operating room table following hip surgery, has reached a settlement. According to the report...

"The settlement halted a trial that was set for today and saved Boston University’s teaching hospital a potentially embarrassing trip to Suffolk Superior Court. The family’s lawyer, Andrew C. Meyer Jr., said the hospital agreed to pay $900,000. Meyer said the case exposed gaps in operating room procedures and hopefully will prevent future tragedies."
