A former nuclear pharmacist man has been awarded $10 million in damages after suffering severe pain following a hospital procedure. Larry Schultz, the injured man, was awarded $5 million alone for his pain and suffering. in 1988, Schultz was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and has been receiving treatments for it ever since. In 2006, he went to St. Luke’s Medical Center to have a drug injected into his spine to relieve spasticity caused by the disease.
Both Baclofen and Reno-60 were injected. Court documents later revealed that Reno-60 is not meant to be used as an intrathecal injection. This means that it is not meant to be injected into the spine.
The negligence on the part of the medical staff lead to serious injuries for Schultz, causing severe spasticity, seizures, and neurological damage. Shultz was forced to use a wheelchair as a result of the painful injuries.
