Additional Cases Of Radiation Overexposure Surface

Yet another hospital is being named in a series of ongoing lawsuits brought forward by patients claiming overexposure to radiation during CT scans.  

Between October 9, 2009 and November 23, 2010, nearly 100 patients at Cabell Huntington Hospital in West Virginia may have received exposure to radiation that is above the recommended level.

The problems at Cabell follow similar situations at Los Angeles-USC Medical Center, Bakersfield Memorial Hospital, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Huntsville Hospital in Alabama.  

Santa Clarita attorney Richard Patterson, who handled lawsuits against the hospitals in the Los Angeles area, is taking on several cases dealing with Cabell.  

“Ironically they are overdosing in October, 2009 a few weeks after Cedars-Sinai problems hit the national news and after the FDA had sent warning notices and alerts to all the hospitals with CT scanners,” he said.  

Potential side effects of the overexposure may include disorientation, Erythema (redness of skin) and a peculiar form of hair loss, leaving a bald band stretching from temple to temple around the scalp.
