$2.4 million jury verdict against Sarah Bush Lincoln

$2.4 million jury verdict against Sarah Bush Lincoln for a nurse’s improper administration of an enema following a man’s prostatectomy.  Clinton Dean Lovell vs. Sarah Bush Lincoln.  After undergoing a successful prostate removal surgery, Dean Lovell (who worked as a volunteer at SBL) returned to the emergency room three days later with constipation.  The surgeons who removed his prostate days earlier, instructed the emergency room physician to not administer an enema; however, when Dean was admitted to the hospital a nurse failed to follow the doctor’s order and administered an enema causing a fistula between Dean urinary tract and rectum.  No settlement offer was ever made by the Defense.
