A 2 year-old patient presented to the emergency department with flu-like symptoms and after assessment, was provided fluids by intravenous (IV) solution for dehydration. During the course of administering the IV, the patient became non-responsive and a Code Blue was called. Despite lengthy administration of resuscitative efforts, the patient passed away. The coroner determined the cause of death to be air embolism. Prior to filing a lawsuit with multiple claims for negligence and wrongful death, the hospital agreed to pay the settlement demand of $1,200,000, the maximum amount for all available causes of action under the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA).
