Hospital Responds To Snake Bite Lawsuit

OIfficials at a Laurel county hospital respond to a lawsuit filed by the family of a woman who died in their care.

48 year old Linda Long was brought to the Marymount Medical Center last November after being bitten by a rattlesnake during a church service in London.

The lawsuit charges that instead of providing proper care for Long, hospital staff made derogatory comments about her religious beliefs.

The Sentinel-Echo reports Marymount Medical Center officials released a statement saying the patient received appropriate treatment at the hospital.
