By Whitney Brakken | Oct 14, 2013

LOGAN - Boone County residents are suing over claims that a local medical center provided inadequate medical care.

Phyllis Ann Hill and Norman Hill filed a medical malpractice lawsuit Aug. 30 in the Circuit Court of Logan County against Logan General Hospital LLC, doing business as Logan Regional Medical Center.

The plaintiffs allege the defendant and Dr. Shook negligently performed Phyllis Hill's foot surgeries on May 13, 2011, and Sept. 30, 2011.

The defendant negligently performed the surgery, failed to keep proper records, failed to follow up after complications, failed to perform conservative therapy, failed to properly care for infection and refused to perform ordered x-rays on Phyllis Hill's foot because her hospital bill was not paid in full, according to the complaint.

As a result of the defendant's negligent actions, Hill suffered further injury, it is alleged.

The plaintiff is seeking an undisclosed amount of damages, including loss of consortium damages. She is being represented by Madison attorney Judson C. MacCallum of Conaway & Conaway PLLC.

Circuit Court of Logan County Case No. 13-C-223.
