Failure to timely intubate a young woman with sepsis.

A D.C. hospital failed to respond to a patient's respiratory distress despite instructions to watch her and signs and symptoms that her breathing was difficult, and did not clear her airway so she could breathe by intubating her.

She went without oxygen while in the hospital and suffered brain damage.
