Tina Holstein gave birth to her third child in October 2007 at Community General Hospital in Syracuse, New York. After the delivery, Holstein felt ill and began vomiting. A nurse at the hospital administered an intramuscular injection to help her feel better. Later, Holstein discovered that she had developed permanent damage to her sciatic nerve.
Holstein sued both the nurse and Community General Hospital for failing to properly administer the injection resulting in permanent injury. The medical malpractice case against the nurse was dropped, but Holstein recently received $1.69 million in damages from Community General Hospital.
