Doctor aids juror, mistrial declared

Saw this on one of my favorite sites.

NORWALK, Ohio (AP) — A judge declared a mistrial in a medical negligence case against a physician after the doctor came to the aid of a juror who passed out during opening statements.

The defendant, Dr. Joseph Carver, told the 74-year-old juror Wednesday that it appeared he had a heart flutter that momentarily prevented oxygen from getting to his brain and caused the blackout. The juror was taken to a hospital for tests.

No new trial date has been set.

Carver, an obstetrician and gynecologist, is being sued for $3 million by a couple who say their newborn daughter was dropped on the floor of a delivery room in 2000 while under Carver’s care.

They say the baby’s fall caused speech problems, seizures and other permanent neurological injuries.

The doctor can't be that bad of a doctor....

Dr. Carver saved my life by doing a surgery on me that he was the only one in the area that was able to do it. I have nothing but praises for him. As far as the baby being dropped, that is a terrible thing. Horrible. But, he wasn't the one who did it. Knowing him, that nurse was fired. As for the person who said he was the child of Dr. Carver, what state do you live in? I know where the Dr. is. Confirm your identity.
