Fleming v. Sheriff Newell Normand, et al
(May 2014)

Thomas Anzelmo obtained summary judgment on behalf of CorrectHealth Jefferson, LLC and two of its nurses.  Plaintiff brought claims of medical negligence against the nurses and CorrectHealth arising out of the treatment he received following an alleged chemical exposure to his eye.  Plaintiff developed a corneal ulcer that lead to a recommended corneal transplant.  The defense submitted evidence and expert testimony that showed that CorrectHealth and its nurses did not breach the applicable standard of care in their treatment of plaintiff’s eye, but instead responded appropriately to plaintiff’s medical complaints and condition.  Additionally, the evidence established that plaintiff’s corneal ulcer did not result from the treatment he received from CorrectHealth and its nurses.  Accordingly, the Court granted summary judgment in favor of the defense, dismissing all of plaintiff’s claims.
