PRINCETON — A woman's husband is suing Princeton Community Hospital Association Inc., which does business as Behavioral Health Pavilion of the Virginians, alleging that the healthcare provider did not take sufficient measures to prevent his wife's injuries.

James Wright, as guardian and conservator of Janet Wright, filed a complaint April 30 in Mercer Circuit Court, alleging that the defendant negligently deviated from applicable standards of care.

According to the complaint, Janet Wright was admitted to Princeton Hospital on Feb. 16, 2016 in connection with a major depressive disorder. As a result of defendant's alleged negligence, James Wright claims his wife suffered a fall that resulted in serious injuries and medical expenses.

The plaintiff claimed the defendant failed to provide a safe environment and failed to properly train and supervise its employees and/or nursing personnel.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees, costs and other general relief. He is represented by William M. Tiano of Tiano O'Dell PLLC in Charleston.
