Cierra Marshall filed a complaint on May 19, in the Jefferson County District Court against Christus Hospital - St. Elizabeth alleging that the healthcare provider breached its duty to properly train and supervise its employees.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges on March 9, 2015, as a result of the defendant's employees' negligence, during the delivery of Marshall's child at Christus Hospital, the plaintiff developed a serious infection requiring continued medical care and treatment.
