PINEVILLE – A West Virginia man alleges an orthopedic physician, nurses and staff at Raleigh General failed to treat his infection and osteomyelitis, which led to the worsening of his infection and the possibility of a leg amputation.
David Morrison filed a complaint in Raleigh Circuit Court against Dr. George Charron and Raleigh General Hospital alleging breach of the standard of care.
Morrison was admitted to Raleigh General in June 2017 for treatment of a severe infection and osteomyelitis, according to the suit. He alleges that the hospital staff "failed to appreciate the infection, the severity of his wound, the necessity for aggressive intervention, and the necessity for immediate transfer to another facility" to be treated by wound care specialists.
He also alleges that the defendants failed to adequately instruct him on proper wound vac care and that this was a cause of the worsening of his condition.
Morrison seeks damages, interest and all other just relief. He is represented by Timothy Lupardus of The Lupardus Law Office in Pineville.
