Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center suspected of negligence

On Monday, February 10 Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center released a statement saying that 18 patients may have accidentally been exposed to a rare brain disease. 

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the disease, identified as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, could cause memory loss, blindness, involuntary twitching, and paralysis. The disease is fatal and kills 90% of people diagnosed within a year.

Surgeons believe that the disease might have been circulated by operating with improperly sanitized tools. It has not yet been confirmed that the patients have been infected.

If you have been injured at a hospital sue to the negligence of medical practitioners, you should not be responsible for covering the costs related to medical bills.
