Hare Wynn Represents Family against Brookwood Hospital for Massive Insulin Overdose
We are proud to represent individuals and families who have suffered injuries and losses due to careless medical providers. Hare Wynn represented a young family against Brookwood Hospital over a medical mistake that caused irreversible brain damage to their infant daughter.
A staff member at the hospital provided the baby with an adult dose of 60 minutes of insulin rather than the 6/10 of a unit for infants—an error that resulted in 100x the amount of insulin ordered. A neurologist called the infant’s MRI “the worst [he had] seen in a living person.” Hare Wynn got the hospital to admit to the error in court pleadings. The case is ongoing.
