Suzan Shinazy

Suzan was a registered nurse working at a small hospital in Fresno. After a violent altercation with a patient going through drug withdrawals, she suffered a cervical spinal cord injury.

She underwent a seemingly successful corrective surgery, but began experiencing difficulty breathing afterwards. She later learned that she had a hemorrhage in her lungs as a result of mistakes made during the surgery.

This outdated compensation cap prevents her from holding the doctor accountable. She now runs an online support group for the victims of medical malpractice.
