Mother's Death Spurs Son To Sue Roswell Hospital

    Saranna Inman, 63, died of complications from a perforated colon on Jan. 28, while under care of doctors at the medical center, according to the suit. 
    The suit was filed in December by Inman's son, Dan Frazier. It alleges that three doctors at the hospital failed to "assess, evaluate, stabilize and treat" her medical condition. 
    The suit identifies the doctors as Gregory G. Dupulos, William F. Briney and Robert Gervais. They and the medical center are named as defendants. 
    After Inman was admitted to the hospital, Dupulos, Briney and Gervais all made errors that constitute medical negligence, according to the suit.  
    Frazier's attorney, Roger Eaton, said Monday that one of the reasons why Inman was misdiagnosed was that doctors initially treated her condition as a psychiatric problem. Doctors at the hospital knew that Inman's husband had committed suicide on New Year's Eve 1998, only weeks earlier, he said. 
    "They directed their energies toward a psychiatric problem and not a medical problem," he said. "They admitted her to the Sunrise Unit which is the psychiatric unit of the Eastern New Mexico Medical Center." 
    Gervais' attorney, Kathleen Horan, said Monday that Inman was initially treated at the hospital Jan. 8 for delirium due to an overdose of Elavil and Serax, two psychotropic medications she was taking at the time. 
    "Mrs. Inman came into the hospital suffering from a delirium that was caused by an overdose of psychotropic medications," Horan said.
    "There were no clinical indications of an underlying medical problem." 
    Horan said Inman was treated for a legitimate psychiatric problem at the time she was admitted. 
    "She did have a psychiatric problem, and she came in on a drug overdose," Horan said. 
    According to the lawsuit: Inman was admitted to the hospital Jan. 8 with complaints of
"lower abdominal pain, a fever and an inability to urinate." At the time of her admittance, Inman had a distended abdomen and a 101 degree fever. 
    The mistakes allegedly made by Dupulos include failing to "recognize and diagnose the cause of the abdominal pain and distention" and to "order the diagnostic tests, including a CBC
(complete blood count) that would have alerted him to a disease process going on." 
    Mistakes allegedly made by Briney include failing to "recognize the abdominal distention that was present during his examination" and failing to follow through on information in prior records "and order the CBC." 
    After Gervais ordered a CBC to evaluate Inman's white blood cell count, he allegedly failed to review the results. Those results "were abnormal and would have led to earlier intervention for the acute abdomen," according to the suit. 
    Eaton said Monday if medical action were taken by doctors after reviewing Inman's white blood cell count, it could have saved her life. 
    "It should have raised a red flag, because the white blood cell count was very high," Eaton said. " It's something that was treatable." 
    But Horan said Gervais never got the results of Inman's CBC and therefore could not act on them. 
    Briney's attorney, Ronald W. Henkel, declined to comment. Dupulos' attorney, Michael J. Dekleva, could not be reached for comment Tuesday. But both have filed separate responses to Frazier's complaint, denying that their clients committed medical negligence. 
    Rod Schumacher, an attorney for the medical center, said Monday he will file a response denying all charges against the hospital. 
    "We will deny any wrongdoing in connection with the lady's death," he said.  
    Fraizer's suit seeks a jury trial in Sandoval County to recover unspecified damages for Inman's wrongful death, including "compensatory damages, prejudgment interest, costs" and other relief.
