Compensation awarded for brain injury

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust is to pay out compensation worth several millions of pounds to a thirteen-year-old girl who suffered severe brain damage while undergoing treatment at the hospital, reports the BBC.

Maisha Najeeb suffers from a rare condition affecting her arteries and veins that can cause bleeding. When she was ten she attended the hospital for treatment that involved injecting special glue from a syringe into her body to block off a bleed. The doctors also had a second syringe containing a dye that they planned to inject into a brain artery to check her blood flow. The two syringes got mixed up, and glue was injected into Maisha’s brain, causing severe brain damage.

Maisha is now in a wheelchair, and relies on help for all day-to-day tasks. The hospital admitted liability and has apologised to Maisha and her family.

The compensation will consist of a lump sum of £2.8 million, plus annual payments for the rest of her life to help meet her care needs.
