In 2003, Bee Gee’s frontman Maurice Gibb died at Mount Sinai Hospital from health complications that were causing him stomach pain. He had been in the hospital for three days and was scheduled to have an in-depth examination the following day. Sadly, his intestine burst and flooded his body with toxins that caused him to go into cardiac arrest and resulted in his death.
Following his death, Gibb’s brothers consulted with medical malpractice lawyers to file a medical malpractice lawsuit to take action against the hospital for hospital negligence. It was their belief that doctors did not detect that Gibb had a twisted bowel, which was further complicated by his admission into the VIP ward on the eighth floor, as opposed to the third floor where the hospital’s emergency equipment was housed.
