Galveston County Daily News (Internet / Print) 01/15/06 A lawsuit filed Friday charges that University of Texas Medical Branch doctors caused a woman’s death by giving her an overdose of medication. UTMB officials said they could not respond to the allegations because of the university’s policy against publicly discussing pending litigation. However, hospital officials did say that physicians and nurses abided by a battery of safeguards when dispensing medication, with dosages based on patients’ individual needs.
