Wife of former patient at Pikeville Medical Center files suit against hospital, doctor

An Eastern Kentucky hospital and one of its doctors are facing litigation after the wife of a former patient claims he died due to negligent care.

Court documents show Avis Bragg, the wife of former patient Jerry Lee Bragg Sr., filed a lawsuit against the hospital and Doctor Dennis Havens last week in U.S. district court.

The Floyd County Times reports the suit claims Bragg was in physical pain and mental anguish until the time of his death.

Officials with Pikeville Medical Center say they have yet to be served with the lawsuit and cannot comment at this time.
