Georgia Supreme Court hears Tenet Health vs. Thomas
The Georgia Supreme Court heard the case of Tenet Health System GB Inc. vs. Thomas on Feb. 12.
Case number S17G1021 came to the Georgia Supreme Court after Tenet Health System, doing business as the Atlanta Medical Center, argued the decision of the Court of Appeals. Tenet argued the decision that allows a medical malpractice lawsuit against it to go forward. The hospital argued that an amendment to the lawsuit, which added a new cause of action against a nurse who was not named in the original lawsuit against two doctors, was barred by a two-year statute of limitations.
The original case revolved around the hospital and two physicians who were sued over allegations of negligence.
