An Ohio couple has brought a lawsuit against St. Mary’s Medical Center and Scott Orthopedic Center, claiming these facilities were negligent in their care and treatment, a New York Injury Lawyer reports.
Others were named in the suit as well, including another medical center and a doctor, as defendants, sources told a New York Injury Lawyer. The plaintiff was a patient of the defendants, beginning in February 2009. The complaint was filed in Cabell Circuit Court on September 22.
The plaintiff, along with his wife, claim the defendants gave him the wrong antibiotic, then prescribed too much of it. They also say his blood levels were not monitored properly, they did not record and report the blood test results accurately, and then kept him on antibiotics after the blood tests began to show evidence of kidney damage.
According to the lawsuit, the defendants’ negligence caused injury to the body, significant physical pain and mental anguish, along with long-lasting disfigurement and deformities. All of these problems contributed to extra medical expenses, like doctors, institutional care, hospitals, nurses, equipment, and related services. They also claim sustained impairment to the capacity to enjoy life, humiliation and embarrassment, and the loss of earning capacity.
The couple wants compensatory damages for all the suffering involved and the case has already been assigned to a circuit court judge, sources told a New York Injury Lawyer. The case has yet to move forward and other details are unknown, as of now.
