The death of Joan Rivers shocked many Americans, including many Missouri residents. The comedian and host of "Fashion Police" died at the age of 81. Recently, however, it has been claimed that Rivers' death was a result of medical professional negligence.
There is also speculation that Joan Rivers' death is an example of a medical malpractice case. According to a report released by a federal investigation, the clinic that provided treatment for the comedian in August failed to notice that her vital signs were deteriorating for at least 15 minutes. This condition reportedly occurred before Rivers went into cardiac arrest. The host died several days later.
