Woman sues Wesley Medical Center over father’s death

KSAL StaffAugust 9, 2015

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.

Wesley Medical Center would not discuss the lawsuit or provide fall data. Wesley’s attorneys in the case deny allegations made by Carlson’s daughter, Donna Sierks, that the center was negligent in its care.

No court date has been set.
