Diabetic Woman Sues Oregon Health & Science University

A diabetic woman has sued Oregon Health & Science University for administering an MRI without having her remove her insulin pump, causing the pump to malfunction and almost kill her. Terrie Rodman, a Sellwood-area grandmother, underwent magnetic resonance imaging of her spine at OHSU in June 2013. According to her suit, she filled out a questionnaire noting she wore a pump, but OHSU employees didn’t instruct her to remove it, nor did they ask her to remove her metal medical alert bracelet. The suit was filed Feb. 5 in Multnomah County Circuit Court. MRIs use powerful magnetic fields that can interact with insulin pumps, damaging their motors. After her MRI, the insulin pump malfunctioned, causing over-delivery of insulin, according to her suit, leading her to suffer a diabetic seizure and near death. She also was burned by her medical alert bracelet in the MRI, the suit says. The suit says she suffered trauma and asks for $978,000.
