Anderson v. Dike

The plaintiff brought this action seeking damages for injuries suffered as a result of the defendants’ alleged negligence. The plaintiff alleged that their injury occurred when the defendant hospital employee intentionally closed a door on the plaintiff’s hand and kicked the plaintiff’s hand into the door. When the plaintiff sought medical attention for the injuries sustained to his hand, he initially refused treatment by a nurse and was then threatened and verbally abused by hospital staff. The plaintiff brought this action against the defendants in their individual capacity, claiming that their actions had violated the patient’s bill of rights pursuant to General Statute §17a- 540 et seq
