Although the plaintiff underwent successful surgery, it was alleged that the prison physician did not provide the plaintiff with the appropriate post-operative care. According to the surgeon, the plaintiff required a sling for additional shoulder support. However, the patient was only given a soft cast. Within a week after the operation, the patient became injured again and sustained more serious complications which took him months to recover from. It was alleged that the correctional medical director did not sufficiently review the plaintiff’s records and failed to provide the plaintiff with the appropriate treatment. An expert in correctional medicine was sought to review the plaintiff’s post-operative treatment plan and opine on liability and causation.
