Medical: Bowel injury during hysterectomy.

Chapman v Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service [2022] QDC 271 (on JADE).

The plaintiff suffered a bowel injury during a laparoscopic hysterectomy in a hospital at Hervey Bay in mid-December 2015.  It was surgically repaired the following day and she was required to wear a colostomy bag until late February 2016. Liability was been admitted but quantum remained in dispute.

Damages were assessed totalling about $200,000, with some debate on loss of earning capacity and on gratuitous care.
