SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The wrongful-death trial of a former patient at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics has been rescheduled, according to court documents.

The lawsuit alleges that UIHC physicians allegedly told Lisa Kaberle Zahina she was no longer suffering from myocarditis and instructed her to stop taking her medication.

Three days later, the 24-year-old died. In July 2008 her parents, Larry and Janice Kaberle, filed the lawsuit after filing a State Tort Claim in May 2007.

On Nov. 4, Kaberle's parents resisted the state's motion to continue the trial, but the parties later agreed on a date.

The trial has been reset for May 2, 2011.
