Medical Malpractice – Improper Titration of Medication – Wrongful Death

A 21-year-old man on anti-epiletic medication died as a result of being improperly titrated from one medication to another, leaving him essentially without a therapeutic dose of medication to prevent seizures. The transition of medication was performed by a physician assistant without adequate supervision from the physician signing to authorize the prescription. A settlement was reached for policy limits with the prescribing physician for the employee’s conduct.
