Improperly Applied Leg Ulcer Treatment

Practice Area: Medical Malpractice, Bodily Injury

Glassman v. The Regents of the University of California; Bischoff's Medical Supplies
San Francisco Superior Court

The plaintiff, an 86 year old woman, was being treated for skin ulcerations on her legs due to inadequate blood supply. She was prescribed compression stockings by the UCSF dermatology clinic, which was the wrong treatment for her circulation problem. The plaintiff took the compression stockings to Bischoff's Medical Supplies, where a store employee manager put the compression stockings on her legs. As a result, the plaintiff suffered a severe decrease in the blood supply to her legs causing irreversible damage and underwent multiple surgeries to avoid amputations.

UCSF claimed that the plaintiff had misunderstood the prescription and that Bischoff's should have known not to put the compression stockings on her legs. The case settled shortly before plaintiff's death for a total of $1.4 million, with Bischoff's and UCSF each contributing $700,000.

Resolution: $1.4 Million
