In-Office Anesthesia Overdose

Walkup’s team of medical malpractice wrongful death attorneys brought suit in Superior Court on behalf of the surviving wife and children of a San Francisco man who suffered cardiac arrest after an in-office plastic surgical procedure. The attending plastic surgeon was shown to have been negligent in leaving the man in the care of an inept nurse after surgery. The nurse failed to summon help when the man’s postoperative course deteriorated. The jury’s verdict was upheld on appeal.
