Lifelong diabetic Shirlyn Gallagher is well aware of the importance of keeping close tabs on her blood sugar levels and administering insulin when appropriate. Unfortunately, medical personnel at the Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida failed to adhere to this long-established standard of practice. After going without insulin for an extended period while undergoing treatment at the facility, Gallagher’s blood sugar peaked, causing her to experience a stroke and subsequent brain damage. Representatives of the hospital have stated that they intend to file an appeal in the matter.
