Woman sues Wesley Medical Center over father’s death

The daughter of a man who died after two hospital falls is suing Wesley Medical Center for $600,000.

Donald Carlson passed away in 2013 at age 91. According to court documents obtained by the Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1WaVrzW), Carlson went to Wesley Medical Center after a car accident on Aug. 5, 2013. Carlson fell two days in a row while a patient at Wesley, according to the lawsuit. Medical providers had labeled him a high fall risk.
