     SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CN) – Kaiser botched the treatment of a woman’s wrist injury, she claims in Sacramento County Superior Court.

     Elizabeth York sued Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, The Permanente Medical Group and Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. for personal injury and medical malpractice.
     According to the lawsuit, York saw one or more medical providers, starting on or around Aug. 30, 2017, for a laceration on her left wrist.
     Due to unsatisfactory treatment, “plaintiff was hurt and injured in her health, strength and activity, sustaining injury to her body and shock and injury to her nervous system and person, all of which said injuries have caused and continue to cause plaintiff great mental, physical and nervous pain and suffering,” the complaint states.
     York’s ability to work has been impeded and she anticipates ongoing financial challenges, according to the complaint.
     Elizabeth York seeks general damages for medical and incidental expenses, costs of suit, lost earnings and prejudgment interest. She is represented by William L. Brelsford of Brelsford, Androvich & White in Sacramento.
