Plaintiff, 63 years old, suffered from osteomyelitis in a great toe and was hospitalized. An intravenous antibiotic, gentamycin, was prescribed for approximately 20 days. Gentamycin must be administered with special care because of the potential risk of injury to the inner ear mechanism which controls equilibrium. Blood levels of gentamycin must be monitored to avoid concentrations of gentamycin rising above the therapeutic range in order to avoid inner ear injury.

Plaintiff's blood levels were not appropriately monitored and Plaintiff developed "ototoxicity" (impairment of her sense of equilibrium). (Confident Settlement).
