A jury found that Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, was liable for emotional distress and medical negligence against Maya Kowalski.
The story of the Kowalskis became a high-profile case after Netflix’s “Take Care of Maya” documentary which explored her 3-month stay in the hospital battling a rare pain syndrome.
