A Hardin County jury found in favor of an Ob-Gyn after a patient died of complications following a vaginal hysterectomy.  The woman died of a pulmonary embolus, and the Plaintiff alleged negligence in the Ob-Gyn’s failure to administer the prophylactic drug Heparin to reduce the risk of an embolus.  The defense, led by Tracy Prewitt, successfully argued that the physician’s use of a pneumatic compression cuff was a satisfactory option, and thus the doctor upheld the competent standard of care.
