Emergency Room

A man with a prior history of heart disease arrived at the emergency room in the midst of chest pain; arm pain, and sweating. Instead of being taken back to the emergency department, the man and his wife were asked to wait in the waiting room. The wife continued to ask for help, but none came until her husband collapsed in the waiting room, beyond the ability of the doctors to resuscitate him.

The wife received $1,250,000 in compensation
