Get your Hospital Lawsuit on

Note: I am NOT endorsing this, just passing along info. – Josh Kamensky just forwarded me some info about a proposed class-action settlement case for any patient who may have been in any Tenet Healthcare-Affiliated Hospitals between June 15, 1999 to Dec. 31, 2004.

  1. What is this even for? Is it serious, frivolous?

    I’m always skeptical when it comes to class-action lawsuits.

  2. Ah ha! It is frivolous! From their own site:

    Did the judge find Tenet Healthcare Corporation guilty?

    No. Tenet has vigorously denied and continues to vigorously deny all of the claims, denies any and all allegations of wrongdoing, and believes that the class action has no merit, they have agreed to enter into this Settlement to put to rest all controversy and to avoid further expense and burdensome, protracted and costly litigation which would be involved in defending this Class Action and any future actions, without in any way acknowledging fault or liability.

    This is more of the kind of idiotic stuff that contributes to the price of healthcare.

  3. A few years ago, I had double pnemonia and blood poisoning (you know, that condition that killed the Pope…). I was in the ICU at St. Lukes and those people literally saved my life.

    There ain’t no way I’m suing them.

  4. I was in the Midway Hospital in August 2000 for a Laparoscopic procedure and back in my room after surgery I had the best red deeeelicious apple OF MY LIFE! Seriously. I’ve never found an apple as sweet since then.
