An Indiana medical malpractice case that was originally dismissed by a trial court has now been turned into a Fort Wayne wrongful death case.

According to The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette, a Fort Wayne wrongful death case has been filed against a Fort Wayne nursing home for the neglect and death of a woman who was supposed to be recovering from surgery on her femur.

The Fort Wayne wrongful death suit claims that the Indiana woman tore her surgical incision because she was given a wheelchair that was too small, suffered from ulcers because she was left on a bed pan for six hours, and after a dialysis treatment was found in her room lying in her own pool of blood.

A possible trial will determine the outcome of the Indiana wrongful death suit.

The South Bend woman was killed after an Indianapolis man, driving south in the northbound lane of an Indiana Interstate, drove his vehicle into the woman’s car.

According to The South Bend Tribune, the Indianapolis man had suffered a severe reaction to an extremely high blood sugar level and was therefore unaware that he was driving in the wrong direction.

Although the man was previously uninformed of his diabetic condition, the family of the woman still feels negligence was a factor in their mother’s South Bend wrongful death.
