This Hospital Pays $900K to Family in SC Following Man’s Death During Procedure

A family in South Carolina has been awarded $900k after filing a lawsuit for the death of a man who underwent a procedure at a local hospital, as reported by Live 5 News.

Irvin Kenly visited the Regional Medical Center in Orangeburg in 2017, complaining of nausea and abdominal pain. Upon examination, he was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis. As per the lawsuit, a doctor instructed a nurse to insert a central line or catheter into Kenly’s external jugular vein.

The staff made several attempts, but unfortunately, they were unsuccessful in placing the central line correctly. Regrettably, the line was inserted into an artery, causing serious complications for Kenly. As a result of this erroneous procedure, he suffered a stroke, paralysis, seizures, a heart attack, and other health problems.

Kenly, who was only 27 years old, tragically passed away. The hospital has not yet released any public statement regarding this incident.
