Man Files Suit Against Hospital in Wrongful Death Claim
Posted on January 23rd, 2009 by Zane Cagle
In a five-count suit, a man alleges that after a three-month hospital stay, his wife died as a result of negligence on behalf of a hospital and three doctors.
The victim was a patient at the hospital from November 2006 to January 2007 where she experienced an abdominal infection, severe sepsis, and infected decubitus ulcers (bedsores).
Two years later, the husband is filing suit against the hospital because it failed to closely monitor his wife for signs of infection or immediately alert her physicians of any major changes in her condition. Also, he alleges that the doctors did not order appropriate diagnostic tests to determine the full scale of his wife’s condition. As a result, she developed an abdominal infection as well as deteriorating bedsores.
Because the hospital staff and doctors did not prevent or appropriately treat the victim’s symptoms in time, the husband attributes his wife’s death to negligence, seeking a judgment of at least $200,000 plus costs.
