Acedo v. Springs

In Acedo v. Springs, No. 05-12-00454-CV, 2013 WL 3477348 (Tex. App.--Dallas July 9, 2013, pet. denied) (mem. op.), the Court concluded an expert report adequately linked conduct to the alleged harm where report stated: (1) the nurses' failure to initiate the chain of command and call for help proximately caused the alleged injury and death; (2) if the chain of command had been initiated and help had been called, additional personnel would have been available to provide assistance and input and, as a result, a particular drug would not have been administered, the patient would not have been paralyzed, and the patient would not have suffered hypoxic brain injury; (3) even if the drug had been administered, additional specialized personnel and equipment would have ensured the patient was successfully intubated after he was paralyzed; (4) the injury to the patient's brain worsened over time until an airway was re-established.
