Long Island Medical Malpractice Lawyers Look Back on Libby Zion’s Case


Medical practices had undoubtedly improved during the past few years, with the latest technologies at their arsenal, brought about by the need to provide a safer patient experience in hospitals and other medical care facilities. Looking back decades ago, however, some of the conditions were much different than they are now.

Lack of Supervision
Though the case had happened more than 30 years ago, medical malpractice lawyers in Long Island and other places in the country still find Libby Zion’s case relevant until now, especially regarding the issue of lack of supervision in hospitals. In March of 1984, Libby Zion, who was experiencing a bout of fever and chills, was admitted at the emergency room of the New York Hospital. Libby said that she had been taking Nardil, an antidepressant, and when asked if she was taking any illegal drugs, she said she wasn’t.
