A fatal facelift in Central Park

The family of Kay Cregan had filed a multi million-dollar lawsuit against Dr. Michael Sachs. Cregan had come to New York City in March 2005 to have a face-lift, nose job and chin augmentation. She had left Ireland and told her family she would be visiting friend in Dublin, but actually went to Dr. Sachs’s office in New York City. Her family and a NYC Medical Malpractice Lawyer brought a lawsuit in New York County Supreme Court against the plastic surgeon who performed the surgery, the anesthesiologist and the nurse. The suit alleges that after administering the anesthesia, the anesthesiologist did not stay to regulate Cregan’s blood pressure. After the surgery, Cregan’s blood pressure dropped and she passed out. The suit further alleges that the nurse failed to intubate Cregan or to call an ambulance in a timely manner. Dr. Sachs settled with Cregan’s family out of court for an undisclosed amount. The family is still suing the anesthesiologist and nurse. Sach’s medical license was taken away in 2008. Hospitals in New York and Brooklyn are susceptible to these suits.
