Woman files suit after suffering and electrosurgery burn

A woman who suffered an arm burn during a hysterectomy is now suing the hospital.

The woman filed a medical malpractice suit against a Michigan hospital, where the incident took place and the appeals court has made a ruling on the matter.

The incident occurred at Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Mich. in 2005 when the woman woke up from a hysterectomy and she had a bandage on her arm. After her husband removed the bandage, the woman had a severe burn on her arm.

The nurse described it as an open blister and said that she thought that the surgical staff failed to put a grounding pad on the woman during surgery to protect her from electrosurgical burns. The court originally dismissed the case, but earlier this month, the appeals court gave the woman permission to file a new complaint.
