According to several media outlets, details of a $4.25M malpractice settlement for a Pennsylvania mom surfaced after Judge refuses to seal the case.
Jo Ann Page filed a lawsuit against Moses Taylor Hospital, Michael J. Kush, MD, Francis Hamm, MD, and Physicians Health Alliance of Carbondale after losing her unborn twin girls due to an undiagnosed case of preeclampsia.
