Dakota Urology Clinic Sued for $5 Million in Medical Malpractice
Five plaintiffs are asking for $5 million in damages from the Siouxland Urology Center in Dakota Dunes, SD. claiming negligence, medical malpractice, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
In the 22 page class-action lawsuit the patients claim Siouxland Urology breached the standard of care by re-using certain disposable medical equipment which caused damages to the patients. Manufacturers recommend the equipment used in cystoscopy procedures be used only once. Siouxland Urology denies any unsterilized equipment ever came into direct contact with patients.
South Dakota Department of Health has ordered the Center to change its cystoscopy practices and the Center is offering a free blood test to check for HIV and Hepatitis for the 5,200 affected patients.
