A Red Wing mother, Jill Adams, received a $1.5 million settlement in a lawsuit against Zumbro Valley Health Center after the death of her son, Caleb Malek, in 2021. The case was heard in Rochester and the jury found that Zumbro Valley was negligent in its care and treatment of Malek.

The lawsuit alleged that Zumbro Valley’s staff did not adhere to their policy of checking on Malek every 15 minutes and failed to properly screen him for drugs upon admission. Additionally, it was claimed that the center did not train its staff to recognize signs of a breathing problem, which may have contributed to Malek’s death.

The verdict form for the case was dated March 22, 2024 with the jury ruling in favor of Adams. Stories like this can be found on the KTTC app where more news and updates can be accessed. Copyright 2024 KTTC. All rights reserved.
