CHICAGO – A patient alleges a doctor failed to diagnose her kidney condition.
Isabella McDougall, Maureen McDougall and Timothy McDougall filed a complaint on Jan. 8 in Cook County Circuit Court against Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago; physician Jerome C. Lane; and Pediatric Faculty Foundation Inc. alleging medical negligence.
According to the complaint, on April 17, 2006, Lane saw Isabella McDougall at Lurie Children's Hospital and diagnosed her with chronic kidney failure. The suit states the plaintiff was under Lane's care through June 2012.
The suit states McDougall was diagnosed with urinary reflux in July 2012, and she needed a kidney transplant in 2014.
The plaintiffs allege the hospital and doctor allegedly failed to discuss, recommend, order or perform reasonable diagnostic tests on McDougall and failed to refer her to a specialist capable of caring for her.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek more than $50,000. They are represented by Raymond & Raymond Ltd. in Schaumburg.
