Celia Lardizabal Marco Dies From COVID-19 While Working at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center

Shortage of PPE Leads to Nurse’s Death

California Work Accident Attorneys

Los Angeles, CA (April 17, 2020) – A nurse at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center died after working with coronavirus patients without proper PPE. The woman, who had worked at the hospital since 2004, died on April 17.

Celia Lardizabal Marco, 61, was working with patients who tested positive for COVID-19.  Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center faced a shortage of personal protective equipment, so Marco wore only a surgical mask while treating patients, rather than an N95 mask.

Marco tested positive for the disease on April 15. She died at the hospital just two days later. The hospital claims it will provide staff with appropriate levels of personal protective equipment as mandated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of Celia Lardizabal Marco.

How COVID-19 Affects Personal Injury Cases

Common, everyday events continue to occur unabated by the COVID-19 pandemic, including slip and fall accidents, car accidents and dog bites. Victims of these accidents can still file personal injury lawsuits as a response to these events, regardless if we’re in the middle of a pandemic. There are some issues that the pandemic creates, however, relating to these lawsuits, and these issues make it even more important than usual for injury victims to contact an attorney so they can discuss their legal options and rights and how to maximize their financial recovery.
