BECKLEY — A Fayette County man is suing a Beckley medical facility and administrator, alleging negligence caused the plaintiff's father to suffer.
Calvin H. Crowe Jr., as personal representative of the estate of Calvin E. Crowe, filed a complaint Jan. 20 in Raleigh Circuit Court against Beckley Appalachian Regional Hospital and Rocco Massey, alleging wrongful death in negligently deviating from the accepted standards of medical care.
According to the complaint, between October 2015 and January 2016, Calvin Crowe Sr. was an in-and-out patient at Beckley Regional. As a result of the defendants' negligence, the suit says, Crowe suffered deterioration of health and physical condition, including deep tissue injury and unstageable pressure ulcer.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide adequate supervision, assessment and assistance to Crowe and failed to provide appropriate treatment and services to promote healing.
Calvin Crowe Jr. seeks trial by jury, judgment for all damages, cost of court, plus all other proper relief. He is represented by attorneys Andrrew L. Paternostro, Jeff D. Stewart and Shayla M. Rigsby of The Bell Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.
