Labissoniere v. Gaylord Hospital, Inc.

The plaintiffs filed a medical practice claim against the defendant physicians and hospital on behalf of the decedent due to the decedent suffering from a retroperitoneal hematoma while in the defendants’ care. The court held: that (1) the plaintiffs failed to comply with § 521-90a (a) because their opinion letter was authored by a physician certified in surgery, not internal medicine like the defendants; and (2) the exception in § 52-184c (c) was inapplicable as the plaintiffs’ failed to allege that the defendants acted outside the scope of internal medicine.
