Background Check

1 Malpractice Claim
  • Settlement : 6/2/2014
    Nature of Complaint: OUT OF STATE CLAIM: SC. Reported by the North Carolina Medical Board INCIDENT LOCATION: PELHAM, SC /// PRACTITIONER COMMENTS: Plaintiff centered his case around: Pt was anticoagulated on Plavix at time of surgery. General surgical consultation was not requested at appropriate time. I should have done a spleenectomy. Review of the chart documented: Pt and family members admitted Pt had been off Plavix for at least one week. Surgical consultation was requested and the on call surgeon did not return our call for 30 minutes and the second surgeon called did not arrive in the OR for an additional 1 hour. The op note clearly states that I did in fact remove the spleen and the consulting surgeon's op note supported my observation/contention the main source of bleeding was a pancreatic vein.
