Malpractice Lawsuit Filed Against Mayo Clinic After Patient Suffers Brain Injury

A lawsuit filed in Olmsted County District Court this month alleges medical personnel from Mayo Clinic Hospital-Saint Marys inadvertently overdosed a patient with an opiate, causing a brain injury.

The plaintiff, Jesse McDonough, of Shoreview, Minnesota, alleges that he was a patient at Mayo Clinic in January 2021 suffering from shortness of breath, alcohol withdrawal disorder and abnormally low sodium in his blood.
