ONE FLEW EAST, ONE FLEW WEST:


Cottage Hospital was ordered to pay $250,000 in legal fees and court costs for failing to warn patients receiving electroconvulsive shock therapy (ECT) of the treatment’s inherent risks. Judge Denise de Bellefeuille ruled the fees were warranted because the suit was beneficial to public interest. Cottage stopped performing shock treatments after de Bellefeuille issued an injunction against the practice in January 2005 and has filed an appeal of the judgment.
