Hudson Health Center Faces Suit
The Hudson Health Center in Ohio is currently being investigated regarding a patient who was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness too late.
The victim, a freshman at Ohio University at the time, was forced to have her arm amputated as a result of the delayed diagnosis.
Girl Arrives at Hospital in Pain
Molly Millsop reportedly awoke in a great deal of pain in her right arm in early September.
When she arrived at the Hudson Health Center her doctor diagnosed her with muscle strain and anxiety.
She later returned to the hospital feeling dizzy and ready to faint and was again wrongfully diagnosed with a sore throat and muscle strain.
The doctor supposedly sent her home with a vomit-inhibiting medication.
Infection at Root of Problems
When she returned to the hospital for a third time, doctors finally realized she had a life threatening infection known as necrotizing fasciitis.
This infection is a rare bacterial one that reportedly is flesh eating and has killed 30 percent of those who have it.
Millsop’s arm and portions of her arm and collarbone were reportedly amputated due to the infection.
Her parents are now underway to file a suit again the medical center and hospital, both of which they hold responsible for the incident.
