Medical Malpractice Resulting in Death: Poor Post Operative Care

He thereafter rapidly went downhill, resulting in his death. The firm’s medical experts were prepared to testify in trial that the patient was in need of greater supervision, and that there were clinical signs that required the nursing staff to call a physician before the breathing tube was dislodged.
