We settled this case while picking the jury on the first day of trial. It was challenging because our client had committed suicide while on suicide watch at St. John's Mercy Medical Center. The physician had prescribed her lethal doses of Fentanyl and a Fentanyl patch for her arm, despite believing she was an imminent suicide threat. We believed this to be negligent and had expert testimony to that effect. The nurses and staff at St. John's had failed to conduct adequate safety checks, which enabled our client to consume the Fentanyl and expire. This case settled for a confidential sum.
