A jury recently approved a $1.1 million award to the family of a woman
who died of complications after a stroke.
Rose Lasko had been in good health up until 2006 when she broke her ankle.
To recover, the 80-year-old went for treatment at a rehabilitation facility
in Lincolnwood, a village just north of Chicago, where she was put under
the care of Dr. John Fultz.
Lasko’s family eventually filed a lawsuit against Fultz, claiming
that Lasko should have been taking blood thinners, specifically a type
of medication she had been prescribed previously. Lasko suffered a stroke
about two months after she broke her ankle and lived the remainder of
her life in a nursing home.
Last month, a jury agreed with the plaintiffs that Fultz was medically
negligent, and awarded the family more than $1.1 million.
