a doctor would ask.
A widow had filed a wrongful death suit against the hospital and doctor she feels were involved in her husbandís death. The man was initially diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome and treated with splints and medication. Days later, he began suffering fever, nausea and congestion and was diagnosed and treated for pneumonia at the hospital. His condition deteriorated and he allegedly died of myocarditis. The medical review panel found the doctor and hospital did not provide optimal care but this did not cause the manís death.
