Roy Geiste, et. al. v. Bridgeport Hospital (Waterbury Superior Court—filed March 15, 2019)  59-year-old Lynne Geiste was brought by her family to Bridgeport Hospital’s Emergency Department for sharp abdominal and back pain, vomiting, and difficulty walking.  Hospital personnel initially ordered a CT scan of Lynne’s abdomen, but the scan was never done.  Despite multiple abnormalities in her bloodwork consistent with acute illness, Lynne was discharged home on narcotic pain medication without a confirmed diagnosis.  Less than 24 hours later Lynne collapsed at home.  Despite aggressive treatment measures performed at Griffin Hospital, Lynne died within a few hours.  According to medical experts consulted to investigate Lynne’s death, Bridgeport Hospital’s emergency department personnel were required to obtain that CT scan of Lynne’s abdomen to investigate the potential diagnosis of acute pancreatitis.  If that scan had been done at Bridgeport Hospital, the proper diagnosis (acute pancreatitis resulting from a perforated stomach ulcer) would have been made, and routine surgical measures would have saved Lynne’s life.  Without the proper diagnosis and treatment Lynne decompensated to the point of multi-system failure and death.  Lynne is survived by her husband, Roy, who brings this lawsuit as administrator of her estate, and their three children.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
