University of Illinois Board of Trustees has recently approved a $16.2 million settlement after a man suffered a brain injury in the care of the nursing staff at the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical Center.
According to the lawsuit, the former police officer suffered from a brain injury after the hospital staff failed to monitor the man’s intracranial pressure in his brain after an EVD challenge.
Throughout the night, the man’s ICP was at dangerous levels and a physician was never notified. The man now suffers from quadriplegia and can not eat on his own and can only communicate through eye and head movements. In addition to the $16.2 million settlement, the nursing agency will also pay $1.5 million.
