NHS IN U.K. FACES £24 MIL BIL AFTER GLUE INJECTED INTO GIRL’S BRAIN

Labels:
 
A simple mix-up in an operating theatre that left a "happy, active" 10-year-old girl with catastrophic brain damage has led to the National Helath Services(NHS) facing a £24m payout – the largest in a case of medical negligence.
Maisha Najeeb was keen on dancing and hoped to become a doctor when glue was accidentally injected into her brain during surgery at Great Ormond Street children's hospital in London in June 2010.
The accident occurred when a syringe containing glue was mistaken for one containing dye. Maisha, who is now 13, suffered what her lawyers describe as "catastrophic and permanent brain damage". She is in a wheelchair, can barely move, is blind in one eye, needs round the clock care and suffers from painful spasms in her legs.
In a settlement agreed at the high court in London, she will receive an initial £2.8m plus annual payments of £383,000 until she is 19. That will then rise to £423,000 a year until she dies.
If she lives until she is 64, as an expert hired by her family said they expected, then the NHS would have to eventually pay total damages of almost £24.2m. The trust, admitted liability for Maisha's injuries.
