Family gets $750000 in Medical Malpractice Settlement

An insurance settlement has been made in a medical malpractice case in the amount of $750,000 by the family of Kevin M. Dalton, 38, who died weeks after undergoing abdominal surgery at Holy Spirit Hospital. Dalton's family claimed he was misdiagnosed when he went to the emergency room complaining of abdominal pain in February 2002. Due to complications from hernia surgery, Dalton had to be on a ventilator to aid his breathing. The family states that Dalton's death was caused by medical personnel mishandled the situation when his breathing tube became blocked.
