The family of a woman who died days after receiving a heart test at the University of Chicago Medical Center will receive $2.6 million settlement under a revised court agreement.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports Sarah Crayton died in 2014 after going to the hospital for an appointment with a heart specialist. The medical malpractice lawsuit alleges the cardiologist ordered a test in which an artery was damaged and the 61-year-old retired postal employee died from internal bleeding.
