In 2010, Lisa-Marie Carter was to have an ovarian cyst removed through a simple outpatient surgery..Instead, she woke up a month later with flesh-eating bacteria attacking
her intestines and abdomen, her hands and feet black from lack of
circulation and headed for amputation.
Dr. Larry Glazerman mistakenly sliced through her small bowel when removing her cyst. Then he sewed her up without noticing the error.
That led to the massive infection, internal damage and limb loss, the
suit says. The surgical error was exacerbated by mistakes made by other
staff at Tampa General Hospital, according to the suit. Now, the suit
says, she needs care from "highly skilled medical personnel 24 hours a
day, seven days a week for the rest of her life.''
