Anger over outsourced medical transcription errors yields $140M

Sharon Juno died because of a typo. A lifelong diabetic, Juno had her insulin dosage dictated by her doctor in Alabama but transcribed by an outsourced sub-contractor in India, who wrote “80” instead of “8.”
Juno passed away after receiving a dose ten times what it should be.
The jury’s anger at the defendants – Thomas Hospital in Fairhope, Ala. and the outsourcing companies it contracted with – drove the $140 million verdict, said Skip Finkbohner, who represented the plaintiff’s family.
