St. Anthony’s Health Center denies allegations against it in a woman’s lawsuit against the hospital.
Tiffany Corbin filed a lawsuit April 16 in Madison County Circuit Court alleged that doctors at St. Anthony's, where her daughter was born, failed to treat an infection that caused her daughter to suffer permanent brain damage.
St. Anthony’s responded to the lawsuit May 28, stating the hospital is “without sufficient information to admit or deny the allegations” in the complaint.
Corbin claims her daughter, Madalynn, was born June 28, 2012, with Group B Strep and is permanently brain damaged. As a result of her condition, Madalynn Corbin will incur millions of dollars in medical costs in the future and will be inhibited from working, talking, walking, thinking or enjoying her life, the suit claims.
Tiffany Corbin claims Dr. Soldrea Thompson of St. Anthony’s Health Center was treating her throughout her pregnancy, but failed to evaluate or treat Tiffany Corbin for risks of infection while her daughter was in her womb.
St. Anthony’s admits providing medical care to Corbin on June 28 but denies that Thompson was its agent, apparent agent, servant or employee and is without sufficient information to admit or deny the remaining allegations and legal conclusions.
