Health care professionals who are undergoing medial treatment sometimes fall victim to the same type of negligence that is responsible for thousands of injuries and deaths every year. In April of 2008, Charleston gynecologist Dr. Jan Cunningham was being treated for an abdominal condition in an area hospital. Cunningham claims that he was not afforded proper aftercare during his recovery from the operation, resulting in an infection and sepsis that left him in debilitating pain and eventually required several additional surgeries to treat. Along with his wife, Cunningham has filed a malpractice lawsuit against the two doctors who were in charge of his treatment, as well as the hospital in which the treatment was provided.
