Doctors left blood drained from woman’s heart into a garbage can, killed her, according to lawsuit from Utah

The family of a Vineyard woman is suing a Utah hospital, saying she died after surgery because doctors left an open tube from her heart that drained her blood into a garbage can.

Doctors at St. Mark’s Hospital in Millcreek performed heart surgery on Donnamay Brockbank in July 2018 to remove a medical device that was causing an allergic reaction, according to a complaint filed last week in Utah’s 3rd District Court.
