Final Diagnosis For Which Treatment Was Sought Including Patient's Actual Condition
Malpractice Settlement Information Richard W. Anderson, Jr., MDLicense # ME49948I had one professional liability claim settled December 22, 2009.This case involved Mr. William V. Dougherty, a 42 year old gentleman, who presented to the emergency department at Florida Hospital Kissimmee on June 7, 1996.Mr. Dougherty presented with a history of having developed right upper back and chest pain while lifting a heavy saw.While in the emergency department Mr. Dougherty did not experience any active chest pain, shortness of breath, numbness or tingling.The physical examination revealed parascapular muscle tenderness.His vital signs were stable.The remainder physical examination was within normal limits.An EKG ordered was benign with non-specific ST changes and left ventricular voltage hypertrophy.He had a 95% pulse oximetry on room air.I ordered a thoracic spine xray to rule out any acute trauma to that area given the parascapular pain and tenderness.The xrays were read as normal.Based on Mr. Dougherty┬┐s chief complaint, history, presentation and my evaluation, I believed that he was suffering from a parascapular muscle strain and treated him accordingly.He was treated and released from the emergency department. The complaint was filed on October 29, 1998 and alleged that I failed to timely diagnose a dissecting aorta.I was informed that Mr. Dougherty┬┐s pain returned three days later (June 10, 1996) and he sought medical attention at another hospital.He was diagnosed with a dissected aorta and underwent surgery. In October 1996 Mr. Doughertydied
