The family of 90-year old Charles Gaal has filed suit in Orange County Circuit Court against Dr. Wesley Meyers for medical negligence. The family is suing the dentist for allegedly dropping tools down this elderly man’s throat-twice. The lawsuit claims that in 2006 the doctor dropped an “implant screwdriver tool” and in 2007 a “mini-wrench”.
Gaal underwent multiple medical procedures to remove the tools but never completely recovered. He suffered a heart attack in 2007 and died a few days later. Dr. Meyer’s was fined $17,000 by the state during their investigation.
Although this case is rather extreme, medical errors are on the rise here in the U.S. in the form of drug interactions, wrong medicines, hospital infections and surgical errors.
