Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in the news

In September 2013, a lawsuit involving UCMC occurred where a family was awarded around $950k for wrongful death. UCMC is reported to be at fault for providing hospice care rather than the standard treatment for a condition of infected ulcers. It was reported that the mother involved in the death, was given narcotics, such as morphine and oxycodone, in amounts suited for someone dying and not for easing of pain. This unneccesary amount of narcotics eventually led to the mother’s death in March 2010.
