HUNTINGTON — An Ohio Couple is suing Raleigh County health care providers, alleging medical negligence in the treatment of their newborn child.
Ryan and Crystal Hysell of Wilmington, Ohio, on behalf of their daughter, A.H., a minor, filed a complaint in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia against Raleigh General Hospital, et al, alleging failure to properly recognize the abnormalities shown by fetal monitor strips.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 29, 2010, minor plaintiff A.H. was born at 41 weeks gestation while Crystal Hysell was under the care of the defendants at Raleigh General. As a result of the defendants' negligent acts and omissions, the suit says, A.H. was diagnosed with global developmental delay and was caused to suffer various abnormalities.
The plaintiffs allege the defendants failed to keep adequate records and, despite a fetal monitor showing abnormalities, the defendants failed to contact a physician to treat A.H.
The Hysells seek trial by jury, judgment to be determined at trial, court costs, interest, attorney fees and all other just and proper relief. They are represented by attorneys Christopher T. Nace, Barry J. Nace and Matthew A. Nace of Paulson & Nace PLLC in Washington.
