CHICAGO — A hospital patient is suing Swedish Covenant Hospital, Swedish Covenant Management Services In., Swedish Covenant Medical Group and Dr. Ronald Curran, citing alleged medical negligence.
Sayed Kazami filed a complaint June 27 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants failed to assume responsibility for the care of their patients.
According to the complaint, Kazami underwent a coronary artery bypass graft surgery on Sept. 4, 2013, but shortly after, he allegedly began experiencing pain and numbness in his left arm and hand.
The plaintiff said he was diagnosed with left-sided medial cord brachial plexopathy as a result of the procedure.
Kazami claims the defendants failed to properly set up and perform the medical procedure, failed to produce all of his medical records and failed to properly care for and treat him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages in an amount to be determined at trial, attorney's fees and costs. He is represented by Steven Muslin of Muslin & Sandberg in Chicago.
