San Francisco Business Times

A San Diego man who allegedly suffered permanent brain injury in a Kaiser hospital two years ago has won a $4.9 million arbitration award in a rare instance of an arbitration loss by the Oakland-based health giant being made public. The patient, then-17-year-old Raymond Palmer, was stabbed at a San Diego trolley stop in May 2011, taken to UCSD Medical Center and later transferred to Kaiser Zion hospital, also known as Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center.
