Wrongful Death at Veterans Hospital

Barbara Wimberley filed a wrongful death complaint at Springfield's federal courthouse, suing the federal government for alleged negligence regarding her husband̢۪s death in a veterans hospital. Having developed lung cancer, Mr. Wimberley was being treated at the Truman Veterans Administration Hospital in Columbia. The veteran was allegedly confused and disoriented on June 5, 2005, and made repeated attempts to remove his medical tubes. The complaint alleged he was left unrestrained, and was later found face down in the grass outside the hospital. He allegedly died from a brain injury two days later.
