Family retains attorney after woman is burned in hospital operating room

The family of Janice McCall of Illinois has retained an attorney after the 65-year-old woman died of injuries she received during a flash fire in the operating room of an Illinois hospital.

According to a report on Fox News, McCall was set ablaze while she was undergoing surgery at the Heartland Regional Medical Center in Marion. She was later transferred to a Nashville, Tennessee hospital where she died six days later.

While patient privacy laws prohibits release of the details of McCall’s case, the Tennessee state medical examiner’s office ruled her death as accidental and as a result of complications from a burn injury.
