VANDERBILT HOSPITAL HIT WITH SEVERAL LAWSUITS IN THE PAST YEAR

Vanderbilt University Medical Center has been facing some tough times over lawsuits.

A Tennessee woman says Vanderbilt University Medical Center operated on the wrong kidney during her surgery in what federal officials call a “never event.”

Carla Miller says that catastrophic mistake damaged her urinary system and she now needs dialysis for life.

She’s seeking more than $25 million in damages in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.

Last month, another lawsuit claimed a Vanderbilt patient died when an unsupervised resident botched a routine procedure, and a former Vanderbilt nurse was indicted on charges of accidentally administering a lethal dose of a paralyzing drug.

All three alleged incidents took place in 2017.
