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.
