A man is suing a health center in New Orleans for allegedly suffering renal failure.
According to the lawsuit filed by William Lee Jones, a nurse failed to check his blood levels after undergoing back surgery and being prescribed an antibiotic called Vancomycin IV.
The nurse assigned to Jones failed to do the proper blood work to check his Vancomycin blood levels.
The lawsuit alleges that Jones was “found to be in acute renal failure from Vancomycin toxicity.”
The lawsuit seeks damages for pain and suffering, mental agony, emotional turmoil, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses and permanent disfigurement.
