Suit Filed Against Hospital for Negligence

Christopher Snyder has filed a lawsuit against Waukesha Memorial Hospital, claiming it was negligent when his wife shot herself while she was a patient at the hospital. On Feb. 22, Wendy Snyder was released from the hospital unit on a five-hour pass, and when she returned to the locked unit, staff failed to conduct a “possession check” as required by the procedure that was in place at the time, the suit stated. The staff failed to search Wendy’s pair of jeans, which included a bag, jacket, handgun and ammunition. The following day, Wendy, a mother of four, fatally shot herself with the handgun.
