Here is the situation people of Pike County. Has everyone noticed the new "sign away you're rights paper" PMC tries to get everyone to sign? Well I will show you why, YES THEY HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY SUED IN THE PAST YEAR, THE TRUTH IS COMING OUT!

Here are some of the details:
Date: 12-10-2009
Case Style: Buddy Hackney v. Mark Swofford, M.D.
Case Number:
Judge: Steven Combs
Court: Circuit Court, Pike County, Kentucky
Plaintiff's Attorney: Truman Chafin, H. Truman Chafin Law Firm, Williamson, West Virginia
Defendant's Attorney:
Description: Buddy and Geneva Hackney sued Mark Swofford, M.D. on a medical negligence (medical malpractice) theory claiming that he acted below the standard of care when he performed surgery on Mr. Hackney in defendant's office and the follow up care provided. Mr. Hackney claimed that he suffered permanent personal injuries from the procedure.
Outcome: Plaintiff's verdict for $4.617 million including $117,612 for medical expenses and $3.75 million in non-economic damages.

The few good doctors and staff at this place has been replaced and removed for disagreeing with them and trying to help good people!

THIS HOSPITAL THINKS THEY CAN TREAT YOU ANYWAY THEY WANT AND THAT THE "LITTLE PEOPLE" CAN'T STAND UP TO THEM LETS SHOW THEM THEY ARE WRONG! THEY SAY THEY HAVE NEVER LOST A LAWSUIT WELL WE ALL KNOW DIFFERENT NOW! THERE IS YOUR FACTS IN BLACK AND WHITE.

MY FAMILY IS IN THE PROCESS OF FILING SUIT AGAINST THEM FOR DAMAGES AGAINST A FAMILY MEMBER, IF YOU OR ONE OF YOUR LOVED ONES HAS BEEN INJURED, HURT, ABUSED, OR HAD THEIR SITUATION MADE WORSE BY THIS HORRIBLE INSTITUTION FEEL FREE TO JUMP ON BOARD. I AM A HARD WORKING MAN THAT DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE MONEY SO I DON'T CARE TO DO A CLASS ACTION AND SPREAD AROUND THE VERDICT!

LETS STAND UP FOR OURSELVES AND OUR FAMILIES AND MAKE PMC FIX THE MESS THEY HAVE DONE TO US IN OUR MOUNTAINS, THE LAW IS THE LAW AND EVEN THEY CANNOT ESCAPE A JURY'S JUSTICE FOR HARM DONE. JUST POST BELOW MY FELLOW PIKEVILLE NEIGHBORS!

If the surgery was performed in the doctor's office what does that have to do with the hospital?

Sorry, I didn't see any place where PMC was named in the lawsuit. I thought the defendant was the physician involved.

I am like others, I see one plantiff and one defendent. That makes it neither a class action lawsuit, or against PMC. Can you explain a little in deeper detail as to how it is a class action suit? Do you even know what a class action suit is?

For Mr. stop crying:
A class action lawsuit is when a large group of persons wronged by an institution is injured, hurt, or damaged and bands together to take and form a legal action against said party for damages.
So yes I know what it is!

This isn't some dumb hillbilly here, and we as a county have rights to band together for change and file this to save lives and hold accountable parties liable!

I don't understand the basis for a "class action lawsuit". I don't think that you can take individual cases of what you might consider malpractice and lump them together to sue a hospital.

Have you seen the ads for CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS on TV, that's the same premise. When a doctor or hospital has injured, hurt, or caused harm to a person or their family a group of persons suffering from the same like situations can choose to join a class action in which they combine and sue the party that caused the damage together instead of individually.
That is what we are doing, enough good PIKE COUNTY KY persons and OTHERS have been hurt, made worse, and even died from this hospital and their gross neglect. It's time for a change, this suit will make them liable for each and every person that has a case against them that has or hasn't been filed due to PMC saying they cannot be sued and you have no choices. This way it can be resolved at the exact same time. It's time to stand for change!

I really don't think that you can file a class action lawsuit based on a bunch of different people making various claims of injury. I believe that a class action lawsuit has to be relative to some specific incident or claim.

That is it. It has to be the "same or like situation". It cannot be a bunch of unrelated or vague complaints. Those have to be looked at indidually. For example if the hospital found out that say a physician had operated unnecessarily on a bunch of people, then that could be a basis for a class action lawsuit by the people involved rather than each one going to court separately. I don't think that a bunch of different scenarios and complaints are the basis for a class action lawsuit. I could be wrong; but that is my understanding of a class action lawsuit.

This class-action lawsuit is. It is being filed against Pikeville Medical Center on the basis of negligence and lack of quality healthcare, not personal injury. These incidents are, indeed, related.
