Michael Schiavo is planning another malpractice suit
“While he did not offer details, Schiavo said he was looking into a potential medical malpractice incident that occurred around Aug. 14, 2003 – about 19 months before his wife’s death.
Around that date, Mrs. Schiavo was admitted to Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater at least twice for problems ranging from a bleeding esophagus to a urinary tract infection to pneumonia, attorneys and relatives said at the time.
His wife was transported from her room at Hospice House Woodside to Morton Plant on Aug. 13, 2003, after she coughed up blood, Schiavo attorney George Felos said at the time. Doctors first suspected she had a stomach ulcer, but later relatives said she had been treated for a bleeding esophagus.
She returned to the hospital on Aug. 24 and had a “substantial infection” and lung congestion, possibly pneumonia, attorneys said then.
At the time, Schiavo said his wife might die without medical treatment, and said doctors told him her prognosis was uncertain even with treatment.”
