Pain Mngmt lawsuit

  1. I heard a story on the radio this morning about a Florida (I think) family suing a physician for lack of pain management of their relative. The patient was dying of metastatic lung CA and suffered excruciating pain during the end of his life and the family felt the doctor didn't address the pain issue. I'm interested in this story because of JCAHO's recent focus on pain management. Does anyone know about this story or know where I could find more info on it?
