Hospital M.D. v. Larry is an interloc. out of Yazoo County. On Tuesday, Jan. 7, this case is being considered by the Ms. S. Ct. Larry was a student at USM who got a flu shot at the USM clinic. She started having problems and was brought to Kings Daughters Hospital in Yazoo City where she was treated and released. The next day she was taken by her mother to UMMC where she was diagnosed with a MRSA infection. She stayed there for three weeks and ended up blind in one eye. Seeking to sue Kings Daughter, the plaintiff sent notice of claim letters to Kings Daughter and the doctor who treated her there. As it turned out, that doctor was an employee of HospitalMD, LLC, which contracted with Kings Daughter to provide emergency care. By the time the plaintiff learned of this and sent a presuit notice to HospitalMD and amended the lawsuit to add it, the time for sending notice and the SOL had run. The trial court denied summary judgment on these issues and the Miss. S. Ct. granted HospitalMD’s interlocutory appeal. Plaintiff is arguing that the SOL should not have run before she discovered that the doctor was not employed by the hospital where he was working. This is an interesting case given the proliferation of these contractual arrangements between hospitals and companies that staff hospitals. The only document available online is HospitalMD’s reply brief.
