2008_10_brainsc.jpgA Queens woman who waited hours for a brain scan was won a $10.7 million award from a jury. Candida Diego, 71, had fallen down stairs at the pharmacy where she worked as a cashier and cracked her skull. She was taken to NY Hospital Medical Center of Queens, where she waited two hours for a brain scan "less than an hour before she lapsed into a coma in the emergency room," the Daily News reports. Diego has no movement on her left side and uses a wheelchair and her husband had retired but returned to work as a butcher to support her; he added, "She can't do anything for herself. She's very depressed." Their lawyer pointed out the hospital is a "level one trauma center" but didn't respond like one; the hospital will appeal the finding.
