Man sues hospital for wife’s death after giving birth

Posted on July 18th, 2011 No Comments

A man recently filed a lawsuit against doctors and nurses at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital on behalf of his wife who died after undergoing a botched C-section at the hospital.

The woman was admitted into the hospital in March 2009 to give birth to the couple’s son. A doctor performed a Cesarean section on the woman, however, he accidentally cut her bowel before suturing her abdomen. In the days following the C-section, the woman suffered abdominal pain and nausea and was unable to have a bowel movement. The woman was diagnosed with intra-abdominal sepsis and acute renal failure, and she died just five days after giving birth.

The woman’s husband is suing the hospital for at least $60,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.
