$4.3 Million Awarded in Medical Malpractice Suit

The family of a man who died of a heart attack after a doctor failed to run adequate tests on him has been awarded $4.3 million. George Rowell was taken to the emergency room (23JAN03) after suffering from chest pains. St. Lucie Medical Center doctor Dr Mastalski released Rowell without running a test for an enzyme present in blood during cardiac malfunction. If the test had been run, the heart condition that eventually killed Rowell could have been revealed.
