Medical professionals are held to some of the highest standards of care when treating patients. This is because patients are entrusting them to make the right decisions which will have a profound and lasting impact on their well-being.

A mother, who has been suffering from back pain for the past 14 years after giving birth, discovered that a broken epidural needle was stuck in her spine. The woman is now planning to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital where she gave birth. Amy Bright, a 41 year-old mother from Florida, gave birth to her sixth and youngest son at the Naval Hospital Jacksonville in September 2003. The baby was delivered through a C-section, and the family thought that everything was fine.
However, just a couple of months later, Amy started to experience severe back pain. On occasion, the pain would shoot down the left side of her leg on through her calf, and then down and into her foot. It was not until last year that Amy found out what was causing her suffering. A CT scan taken in the fall of 2017 revealed that an inch-long portion of an epidural needle was stuck in her spine. The needle allegedly broke off when doctors from the Naval Hospital Jacksonville decided to give her an epidural over 14 years ago.
