Daughter says Pasadena hospital neglected to take late mother's delirium risk into consideration

By John Suayan | Feb 12, 2019

HOUSTON – A Harris County woman is suing a Pasadena hospital over injuries to her late mother during a stay in early 2017.

In a lawsuit filed on Feb. 11 in the Harris County 11th District Court, Chere Wilpitz says that Bayshore Medical Center’s failure to take Ethel Maxine Fleming’s risk of delirium into consideration ultimately resulted in the “surgical evacuation” of hematomas on her arms.

Fleming checked in to Bayshore for a transfusion. Her medical records indicated “a history of some confusion” in addition to the delirium risk, the suit says.

According to Wilpitz, her mother’s confusion and delirium worsened during an incident in which hospital security had to be summoned. Both of the decedent’s arms were purportedly injured during the ordeal.

Bayshore is faulted for negligence and gross negligence.

Consequently, Wilpitz seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

The law firm Rosen & Spears in Houston is representing the complainant.
