? A Mastic family is planning to sue Stony Brook University Medical Center after the hospital was blamed for the death of a 6-year-old boy.
William Gonzalez died at Stony Brook in September 2007 of an enlarged heart. According to New York State, the hospital failed to check the boy?s heart until it was too late, instead treating him for acid reflux.
In 2006, four other families claimed their children were misdiagnosed with reflux at Stony Brook.
The hospital won't comment on the case specifically, but says it is taking the situation seriously and will cooperate with the Department of Health.
