A Las Vegas jury found that Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe failed to adequately treat a former Raton resident during his 2006 stay at the hospital, and awarded his estate more than $10.3 million in damages.
Alfred Gonzales had suffered bedsores after hip surgery because of improper treatment. He later died of unrelated causes at age 57.
The jury awarded $595,000 for compensatory damages and $9.75 million for punitive damages.
