Authorization for Settlement Mary E. Wadley
(33) The university counsel recommends that the board approve a structured settlement of a claim against the University of Illinois Hospital resulting from the treatment of a patient, Mary E. Wadley. A radiology resident inadvertently injected computed tomography scan contrast dye into the claimant's brain through the cerebral pressure monitor intravenous line, which led to her death. The proposed structured settlement is payable in monthly installments as follows to Paul Wadley, executor of the estate: 1. First nine years 2. Second nine years 3. Third nine years Total Payout Per Month $5 000 $7 083 $8 333 $ Total 540 000 764 964 899 964
$2 204 928
It is also proposed that the University pay the plaintiff's attorney fees plus cost. The total cost of the package, including the purchase of an annuity for the above payments and the attorney fees, is approximately $1.17 million. The vice president for business and finance concurs. I recommend approval.
On motion of Mr. Boyle, these recommendations were approved by the following vote: Aye, Dr. Bacon, Mr. Boyle, Mrs. Calder, Mr. Downey, Mr. Grabowski, Mrs. Gravenhorst, Mr. Lamont, Ms. Reese; no, none; absent, Governor Edgar, Mrs. Shepherd. (The student advisory vote was: Aye, Mr. Begovich, Mr. Lawless; no, none.)
Head, Department of Pharmacodynamics, College of Pharmacy, Chicago (Relief of Title and Duties)
(34) Article IV, Section 3a of the University of Illinois Statutes provides that the head of a department is appointed without term by the Board of Trustees and may be relieved of title and duties by the Board of Trustees. Dr. Eugene F. Woods is currently head of the Department of Pharmacodynamics in the College of Pharmacy in Chicago. Following discussions between the interim dean and Dr. Woods, the interim dean and the chancellor at Chicago recommend that the board relieve Dr. Woods of his title and duties as head of the Department of Pharmacodynamics to be effective immediately. Dr. Woods will continue as a tenured member of the faculty at his current academic rank. This decision was discussed with Dr. Woods in June and July. The vice president for academic affairs concurs. I recommend approval.
On motion of Mr. Boyle, this recommendation was approved.
