Jury awards $10.7 million to woman who waited for brain scan

AP/USA Today, October 14, 2008
A jury has awarded nearly $11 million to a woman who became partially paralyzed after waiting two hours for a hospital brain scan at New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens. Jurors found the medical center was negligent in caring for Candida Diego after she fractured her skull in a fall in September 2004. A spokeswoman said the hospital doesn't believe it is liable for the 71-year-old's condition and is appealing the decision.
