Woman Sues Mercy Medical Center

According to The News-Review, one woman, Renee Bates, has sued CHI Mercy Medical Center in Douglas County Circuit Court on February 4th, alleging medical malpractice. Bates claims that the hospital failed to attend to and supervise her when she was suffering from orthostatic hypotension and was at severe risk of falling. Bates fell off her bedside commode in February of 2017 and struck her head on the floor of her hospital room. Bates alleges that this blow fractured her cervical spine which resulted in three surgeries to repair cervical instability and to repair an injured cervical disc. Bates now suffers from permanent restriction of cervical range of motion.
