CHARLESTON — A Kanawha County woman is suing medical care providers, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries to the plaintiff's infant daughter.
Kristina Wiley of Cross Lanes, parent and guardian of Abigail Wiley, a minor, filed a complaint Dec. 13 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Charleston Area Medical Center Inc. doing business as Womens and Children Hospital, and St. Mary's Medical Center Inc., alleging they breached their duty to provide critical medical care and treatment.
According to the complaint, as a result of defendants' negligence, Abigail Wiley suffered severe, permanent and irreversible injuries to her hearing. The plaintiff alleges St. Mary's Medical Center negligently prescribed large amounts of ampicillin and gentamicin to Wiley, and Charleston Area Medical Center negligently kept Wiley, on ampicillin and gentamicin in overly large amounts.
Kristina Wiley seeks trial by jury, compensatory damages for economic and non-economic losses, punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, court costs and all other proper relief. She is represented by attorneys Stacy A. Jacques and Richard D. Lindsay of Tabor Lindsay & Associates in Charleston.
