On September 6, 2023 John Barker, Kiki Chrisomallides and Rani Kulkarni won summary judgment in a medical malpractice case brought against a major New York Hospital. Plaintiff alleged that the infant-plaintiff patient suffered a left foot IV infiltrate as a result of a failure to properly and timely order and perform IV site checks and provide appropriate treatment for the IV infiltration and extravasation leading to phlebitis, burn, swelling, ecchymosis and blistering of the left foot. Following oral argument, the Court granted dismissal of all of the claims asserted against the Hospital after ruling that plaintiff’s nursing expert did not sufficiently rebut the opinions of the plastic surgeon that accompanied the hospital’s motion.
