Maryland Hospital Wrongly Denies Stent Problem | DC Metro Area Medical Malpractice Law Blog

Posted by: Salvatore J. Zambri, founding member and senior attorney

In a column in the Baltimore Sun (8/31), Jay Hancock writes that St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, MD, “deserves credit for shutting down Dr. Mark Midei last year when an internal review showed that he was implanting stents in numerous coronary arteries with ‘insignificant’ blockage.” Now St. Joseph “needs to continue to do the right thing and negotiate in good faith with patients who got stents that a state inquiry and the hospital’s own probe suggest were unneeded.” They should drop the “stonewalling” and “the legal bluster” that is being used to deny justice to those who have been harmed.

Every day I represent patients who have been harmed, and sometimes killed, as a result of medical negligence.  Medical providers should indeed be credited when changes take place to avoid future errors.  Making changes is not enough, though.  The providers should also take responsibility for their wrongdoing and fairly compensate the victims of the medical mistakes.
