Two Doctors Face Wrongful Death Suit

Sara Joy Burnson’s parents are waiting to hear a verdict this week in the trial of two Ashland doctors implicated in the wrongful death of their daughter in 2002. At age 16 Sara Joy Burson died after taking the prescription painkiller Propacet. Burnson suffered a fatal irregular heartbeat in the intensive care unit at Ashland Community Hospital. The suit is seeking a $2.2 million judgment against physicians, Dr. Paul Rostykus and John Delgado, alleging they failed to obtain and accurately complete a history of prescription medications “which were or might have been ingested by the patient.”
