A Connecticut jury awarded $10.5 million to a woman who was left with permanent injuries as a result of improper anesthesia care during surgery.

Karla Rosa, 44, brought the medical malpractice lawsuit against  Anesthesia Associates of New London, and anesthesiologists Drs. Thomas Meitt and Bart Calobrisi, and certified nurse anesthetist Jean Richeimer.

According to the lawsuit Rose suffered “serious, severe, painful and permanent injuries” including nerve damage, memory loss, foot pain, a tracheotomy scar, and physiological, psychological and neurological side effects after spending 26 days in a coma, 29 days in intensive care and 45 days in verbal and orthopedic rehabilitation, because of the careless and negligent pre-operative assessment and use of  anesthesia equipment and patient monitoring.

Rosa was left “permanently deprived of her full ability to carry on and enjoy life’s activities,” and needs “a lot of assistance from her daughters,” her lawyer said.

Rosa and her husband Delmar filed the lawsuit in 2008, and now live in Ohio with their family. disclaimer: This article: Connecticut Woman Awarded $10.5 Million In Medical Malpractice Suit was posted on Friday, May 13th, 2011 at 7:49 pm at and is filed under Medical Malpractice Lawsuits.
