Over-sedation leads to $851,000 settlement (access required)

Woman suffered brain damage after being totally sedated for minor surgery

A young woman who was unnecessarily sedated by health care workers at a South Carolina surgery center has collected $851,000 to settle a medical-malpractice lawsuit, according to her attorneys. David B. Yarborough Jr. (pictured) of Yarborough Applegate in Mount Pleasant and John D. Clark of the Clark Law Firm in Sumter say their client suffered brain damage as a result of the botched procedure in 2007. The woman, who was 20 at the time of her injury, sued the center along with the gynecologist and certified registered nurse anesthetist, or CRNA, who treated her.
