Negligent failure to diagnose a fatal heart condition While being examined at her local emergency room, Mr. Gladstein’s client underwent an electrocardiogram (“EKG”), which showed second-degree heart block. Heart block is a problem with the heart’s electrical system, and is potentially fatal. The ER physicians either misinterpreted the EKG, or ignored the condition, as they failed to call for a cardiology consult before discharging the client. The client returned to the same ER approximately 15 hours later, and underwent a second EKG. That test showed the client’s heart block had worsened. Again, however, the attending ER physician failed to order a cardiology consult, or placed an external pacemaker on the client. As a result, the client suffered a heart attack, which left her with severe brain damage. Several days after suffering the heart attack, the client passed away.
