After becoming pregnant four years later, Larkin's obstetrician was unaware of her brain issues because she didn't appear in the database. Larkin suffered a massive stroke as a result of giving birth, paralyzing her. Andrea remains paralyzed-unable to care for herself or her child. She and her husband have amassed more than $200,000 in medical bills.
This is a tragic, senseless event. In past blog posts, we've written about the need for medical databases in order to ensure improved quality of care. Yet, in this instance there was a database and it wasn't utilized. As a result, a young, healthy wife and mother remains paralyzed, probably for life.
