Planned Parenthood pays $2 million settlement

A circuit court in Illinois has agreed to a $2 million settlement in the death of a 24-year-old woman who died after an abortion procedure at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago. In what may have been a surgical error, the woman began bleeding following the procedure and was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Court documents indicate that the settlement from Planned Parenthood will be held in trust for the woman's minor son.

Medical malpractice lands Illinois victims in hospitals

Some Illinois nursing homes have been found responsible for incorrect medication distribution, leading some victims to wind up in hospitals for treatment of more serious conditions. Two nursing home residents died in 2011 and one had a leg amputated after an infection became unmanageable. One cancer patient was responding well to his treatments, but when medications were withheld for about one year he took a turn for the worst. He had not been taken to see his oncologist and died in 2010.
