Female plaintiff alleged medical negligence against a nurse working for Mercy Medical Center. She alleged that the nurse negligently attempted to catheterize her to obtain a urine sample, and that as a result, she sustained severe injuries, including the development of urinary difficulties, a cystocele and rectocele. Mercy presented testimony from experts, as well as from plaintiff's own gynecologist and surgeon, that her medical problems had nothing to do with any attempted catheterization, and also pointed out to the jury that plaintiff had not complained to any medical care provider about any problem with the catheterization. The jury found no medical negligence against the nurse or Mercy Medical Center.
