Experts Battle In Sacramento Medical Malpractice Case, Part 6 of 7

It is worth noting that situations similar to those described in this medical malpractice case could just as easily occur at any of the healthcare facilities in the area, such as Kaiser Permanente, UC Davis Medical Center, Mercy, Methodist, or Sutter.

(Please also note: the names and locations of all parties have been changed to protect the confidentiality of the participants in this personal injury lawsuit and its proceedings.)

For example, in this regard, Dr. Hill testified as follows:

He does not believe Dr. Li was performing an adjustment on plaintiff’s knee. It is his understanding that plaintiff’s knee hurt and that Dr. Li decided to do something about it and during her evaluation she mentioned that she does not feel comfortable with Dr. Li touching the knee and that he did a manipulation anyway that made her knee worse.

He does not know if plaintiff received a knee adjustment from defendant facility or defendant prior to the date in question because that information is not written in the chart, and it does not say who treated her on any one date.

He could not tell what chiropractic adjustment was done to Ms. Welden on May 25, 2007, because he could not read the notes very well; he could not understand the chart.

He does not know the specific forces used during defendant’s adjustment of plaintiff because he doesn’t know what adjustment defendant used. He can only base his opinion on what the patient says was done. He does not know if Dr. Li did an evaluation of plaintiff’s knee prior to the adjustment because the identity of the person who did the evaluation is not noted.

He does not know if Dr. Li properly executed the knee adjustment because he has no idea what technique he used, because it is not documented in the chart notes. Page 58, line 9 through 15. He criticizes whoever took the notes and history because the notes are illegible, they are not very specific and they should probably contain more specific information.

Therefore, defendant’s argument that Dr. Hill testified that the wrong leg was manipulated and that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about is disingenuous, lacks merit, and is misplaced. (See Part 7 of 7.)
