A settlement has been reached in the case of a Chicago woman dying as a result of hospital negligence.
Twentyseven year old Farrah Dickerson was 31 weeks pregnant when she began bleeding, ultimately passing out. The staff of Stroger Hospital in Cook County failed to give her blood-clotting medication resulting in her death.
Her baby survived but is now motherless.
Last week the Cook County Board approved the hospital negligence settlement, awarding the family $9.8 million.
It is little consolation to those who are left behind.
