Malpractice: Nursing home patient given too much blood thinner

Posted under Uncategorized

A Port Arthur woman, Henrietta Hebert, claims she was given too much blood thinner from a nursing home in Groves.

Magnolia Manor and Cresthaven Health Care Center Ltd is being sued by Hebert for the incident. Hebert was a patient at the long-term care facility and was taking Coumadin, an anti-coagulant. The Magnolia Manor staff was responsible for administering the drug.

A known rish of Coumadin is hemorrhage, which increases over the time of use of the drug. Hebert was diagnosed with Coumadin toxicity, placed on a ventilator and had to recieve blood transfusions. While in the hospital, Hebert had to be fed from a feeding tube.

Hebert claims that Magnolia Manor staff failed to properly monitor her Coumadin level, failed to adjust the level of Coumadin, and failed to detect her toxicity.

Hebert is suing for suffering physical pain, mental distress, medical expenses, and attorney fees.
