Health News & Information:

Lawrence and Memorial Hospital has settled a lawsuit in which a New London woman claimed doctors failed to properly diagnose and treat her mother after she contracted the flesh-eating bacteria.

Former Republican Town Committee Chairwoman Robin Miller died in 2003 after contracting necrotizing fascitis.

An attorney for Miller’s daughter, Bianca Nardi the suit included a number of things the hospital did wrong, including waiting too long for treatment and failing to consult a supervising physician.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Hospital spokesman Michael O’Farrell also confirmed the case has been settled, but would not say whether the hospital had changed any policies or procedures as a result of Miller’s death.
