"An attorney for a Chester woman who died from a twisted intestine after three trips to the emergency room said her family has agreed to settle a lawsuit with six doctors for $3 million.
Lawyer Chad McGowan told The Herald of Rock Hill that the settlement still must be approved by a judge. The money will go to Heather Sloan's three children.
The lawsuit said Sloan went to the Chester Regional Medical Center emergency room in March 2005 complaining of abdominal pain, but the person reading a CT scan didn't see a problem and she was sent home.
The suit said Sloan returned to the emergency room two more times before doctors operated and found the twisted intestine. She died later that night."
