Massachusetts Couple Gets $2M in Malpractice Suit

December 17, 2010

A jury has ruled in favor of a Massachusetts couple and awarded them nearly $2 million in a medical malpractice suit they brought against St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester.

Laura Ginisi claimed in the suit that misdiagnosis of several strokes her husband Joseph Ginisi suffered in 2004, as well as delay in treatment for cancer at the Worcester hospital, led to him becoming legally blind and unable to walk.

Laura Ginisi told The Telegram & Gazette that while pleased with the jury’s decision, no amount of money will cure her husband, who is unable to live at home.

The jury did not find any doctors or staff members responsible, just the hospital.

Hospital officials refused comment on the case, but noted Joseph Ginisi’s treatment occurred under previous ownership.
