Family Sues Hospital for Malpractice and Wrongful Death

A woman being treated at St. Isidore Health Care Center in Minnesota recently lost her life, and the family is holding the hospital and doctors responsible. According to local newspapers, the family of the woman are suing for both medical malpractice and wrongful death for the loss of their loved one; claiming that the nurse and the clinic are responsible for her death.

Rosella Arends died prematurely in January of 2010, and the family is convinced that it is because she was denied timely treatments and care for her respiratory health problems, leading to her unexpected death. The family is seeking at least $50,000 for the malpractice and wrongful death in order to cover expenses from the funeral and burial, as well as compensation for the damages and loss of Rosella.

The lawsuit claims that Rosella, a venerable victim, was only in the hospital for a little over a week and in that time was not properly cared as she should have been. The Arends family states that during her stay, the medical professionals strayed far from their standard of care towards Rosella, having rarely checked in on her or monitored her during her stay. Despite the family's efforts to prove the negligence leading to the wrongful death, the hospital claims that their staff in no way neglected the patient and they acted accordingly giving her the necessary care.
