Boston Children's Hospital sued by Connecticut family

In 2012, a teenager was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease at Tufts Medical Center. That disease is a rare genetic disorder. Children's Hospital in Boston, however, diagnosed the teen as having psychiatric problems. When the girl's parents disagreed with the second diagnosis, they wanted her to be taken to Tufts again. The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families took custody of the teen after medical child abuse allegations were raised against her parents. Eventually, custody was returned to her parents in 2014, and she was moved to a Thompson, Connecticut, medical facility.

Man's $7 million medical malpractice lawsuit denied

In 2010, a 40-year-old man was extradited back to the U.S. from Dubai to stand trial for supporting al-Qaida. According to the man, he suffered from a burning pain in his calf after the 16-hour flight back to the U.S. He was shackled and handcuffed for the trip.

$11.6 million malpractice verdict against radiologist, practice

In 2012, a man went to Glens Falls Hospital, which is located in Connecticut's neighboring state of New York, with complaints of a headache, dizziness and difficulties standing. A CT scan was performed, but the undiagnosed stroke, visible because of a blocked brain blood vessel, was not reported by the radiologist to the staff in the emergency room. The ER physician diagnosed the man with a sinus infection and sent him home. The man suffered a major stroke seven weeks later. The former aerospace machinist can no longer work and requires lifetime care for his permanent disabilities.
