Of the total award, more than $6 million is assigned to 45-year-old Christopher Carey Miller's future medical expenses and daily care over the next three decades, the article said. The remainder is to cover his incurred medical expenses, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
Miller underwent an MRI scan at Tyrone Hospital on October 4, 2016, to evaluate back pain. He had an allergic reaction to gadolinium, went into cardiac arrest, and sustained brain damage, according to the report. The hospital did not have an alarm in the MRI room, although there was one in the control room, nor an emergency drug box with epinephrine, an anti-allergy medication.
Of the medical malpractice award, 75% was assigned to the hospital and 25% to the supervising radiologist for Miller's exam, Dr. Kelly Biggs, the Mirror reported.
