November 20, 1998

A Jefferson County jury found in favor of a CRNA after a patient awakened from a back surgery to discover that he had lost 80% of his vision in one eye and was legally blind in the other.  The Plaintiff alleged the care was negligent because arterial pressure was too low, blood replacement was untimely, and too much fluid caused a venous congestion.  The defense, led by Donald Brown, successfully counter-claimed that the care was perfectly proper, and that the optic neuropathy was an unfortunate but unrelated effect of the CRNA’s care.
