A jury has recently awarded an additional $18 million to a woman whose botched surgery at a Wenatchee, Wash. hospital left her unable to speak. The Wenatchee World reported that Becky S. Anderson was having polyps removed from her vocal cords with a laser last year when a breathing tube in her throat caught fire. Central Washington Hospital agreed to pay $12 million to settle claims against it and a King County Superior Court jury has ordered that two other entities — Wenatchee Valley Medical Center and Wenatchee Anesthesia Associates — pay a combined $18 million.
