$5 million okayed to settle San Francisco malpractice case

San Francisco Chronicle, April 30, 2008

City supervisors have given their approval to a $5.1 million settlement stemming from a 2005 incident of medical malpractice at San Francisco General Hospital. A spokesman for City Attorney Dennis Herrera said the settlement is "the largest in recent memory involving medical malpractice." The city admitted to mishandling the case of John Weatherspoon III, who visited the hospital in June 2005 complaining of fever and cough symptoms that had persisted for nearly a week.
