Hospital to Pay $140 Million in Ex-Patient Death

Reports say a Baldwin County Circuit Court judge ordered Thomas Hospital and three other firms to pay the family of Sharron Juno, of Daphne, who died in 2008.

The website reports when Juno was discharged from Thomas, her doctor dictated prescription information by phone which was then computerized and relayed to India.

The orders were incorrectly copied and the woman died after being given 10 times the amount of insulin she needed at another hospital.

A Thomas Hospital administrator expressed condolences toward the family, but says the verdict was excessive and the hospital plans to file an appeal.
