BELLEVILLE–An Illinois woman is suing a doctor and health care providers, alleging negligence in her husband's death.

Barbara Tanner, acting as administrator of her husband Bryant Tanner Jr.'s estate, filed a lawsuit Oct. 19 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants, Dr. Paban Saha and St. Elizabeth's Hospital of the Hospital Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis. 

According to the complaint, Bryant Tanner Jr. died Jan. 23 after he was admitted to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Belleville for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. At that time, he was under the medical care of Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants and Saha, the suit says. After said treatment, Tanner developed abnormal cardiac activity which led to cardiac arrest and his death, the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit alleges negligence caused his death. 

As a result, the suit says, the plaintiff suffered loss of companionship, services, love, affection and support.  

Barbara Tanner seeks at least $50,000 from the defendants. She is represented by attorney Mary Mansfield Brauer of Cook, Ysursa, Bartholomew, Brauer & Shevlin in Belleville.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number 15-L-593.
