A $7.3 million award has been returned by a Los Angeles jury in a lawsuit alleging Cedars-Sinai Medical Center was negligent, reports the Enquirer-Herald.
The lawsuit was filed in 2005 by the parents of a baby who was misdiagnosed by doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The lawsuit claimed the doctors in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit failed to quickly diagnose and treat the baby for meningitis. As a result of the delay in treatment, the child suffered irreversible brain damage.
