Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital is being sued yet again, this time by Danna and Mark Terlaje and their children. According to court documents, the suit stems from two trips Danna made to the emergency room in July 2006.
The first time she went in, Danna was treated for a gastrointestinal ailment and released. Later that day, Danna was re-admitted to the emergency room after she collapsed and was revived by her husband. It was later determined that Danna had a heart attack.
The couple alleges GMH staff failed to properly diagnose and treat her for such instead of mistreating her. Additionally they allege that as a result of the misdiagnosis, Danna has been incapacitated and has had to undergo extensive medical, hospital and nursing attention.
The Terlajes are asking for damages in an amount to be proven at trial and attorney's fees.
