Hospital Hit with Negligence and Malpractice Suit

A hospital in Gallup, New Mexico is being sued for negligence and medical malpractice after the death of a two-year-old patient. Doctors Maria Abad and Teicha Wilson at Rehoboth McKinley Christian Hospital are being accused by the patient's family of failing to accurately diagnose the condition of the girl. The family also claim that the patient was not given the required amount of antibiotics. The lawsuit claims that the patient died prematurely and unnecessarily as a direct result of the malpractice and negligence of Wilson and Abad. Rehoboth McKinley spokeswoman Elaine Bobo insists the defendants administered the correct level of care. The lawsuit, which was filed last month (SEP06), seeks unspecified damages.
