On March 16, a man filed a medical malpractice, naming a heart surgeon, hospital and six hospital employees as defendants. The negligence lawsuit alleges that after performing heart surgery on the plaintiff, the doctor failed to completely sew the incision shut on his chest. Two days later, he went into respiratory failure and was admitted to the hospital, where the doctor again failed to address his symptoms of “loss of consciousness, respiratory failure and possible bleeding postoperatively,” according to the article. The plaintiff will act as his own attorney in the medical malpractice lawsuit and is seeking compensation for lost wages.
