A grandmother from the Bronx finally won a whopping sum of $110.6 million in a malpractice lawsuit against St. Barnabas Hospital and four of its doctors (Dr. Darryl Adler, Dr. Richard Stumacher, Dr. Abdurham Ahmed and the estate of Dr. Ronald Ciubutaro) due to their inefficiency while treating her in 2010.

In 2010, Keimoneia Redish, 48 had an asthma attack that later on triggered a brain injury thanks to the doctor's inadequacy. The damage which was so severe, it left Redish with crippling, lifelong speech and motor deficits, and she had to live in a nursing home for about a year.

According to "New York Daily News" the grandmother argued that the clinic had refused to take her to a better-equipped facility which of course would have made a significant difference in her health. The mother of five sons and one grandchild continued that the hospital couldn't take care of the swelling in the brain caused by the buildup of carbon dioxide which was as a result of her asthma.

After the verdict was made, the grandmother confessed to "New York Daily News" that she felt "numb" from fighting for so long and finally ending up being victorious. Although this might not be the reaction people might have expected, it is understandable that Keimoneia felt how she did.

But the 48-year-old wasn't the only one affected by this ordeal and her partner of 26 years, Clarence Darden who had been caring for her through the sickness reported to the news agency that,

“She went through a lot; we went through so much, I’m just so happy for her now.”

Richard Gurfein, the plaintiff's lawyer also spoke about the victory and how they had based their case on the fact that the hospital ignored taking Redish to a better-equipped facility which would have been the best thing to do in regards to her care.

The hospital is meant to be a place of healing but unfortunately, it wasn't for this elderly woman. Although her speech is still slurred and she still needs a wheelchair to support her, Redish has shown courage, and hopefully, she'll be able to beat her ailment.
