A young woman was taken to a medical center to have her blood sugar stabilized and acid reflux controlled. A week later her heart stopped but she went unnoticed. Attempts to revive her left her in a vegetative state. Her family permitted her organs to be donated prior to turning off her life support. It was alleged that a nurse accidentally gave her the epilepsy drug Dilantin which can have fatal interactions with other drugs. The family still has not had a full explanation from the hospital.
