    Malpractice Claims not available

    • Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Colorado.
    • Substandard Care, Incompetence or Negligence  (5/21/2010)
    • Action Taken: Reprimand
    • Summary: Dr. Rebecca Knight; License # 38885

      Nature of Complaint:

      The physician’s care and treatment of a patient, in November 2007, fell below the generally accepted standards of practice for a surgeon. The patient underwent surgery to remove an inflamed segment of his sigmoid colon. On post operative day five, the patient was experiencing increased pain, abdominal extension, agitation, and tachycardia. The physician increased the patient’s pain medication and the following morning, concluded that the patient was improving. That afternoon, another physician ordered tests that revealed the patient had an anastomotic leak. Surgery was performed, but the patient expired from sepsis and severe peritonitis.

      Action Taken:

      The Colorado Board of Medical Examiners has issued the physician a Letter of Admonition.
