Court of Appeals of Indiana Oral Argument & Discussion
Glon v. Memorial Hospital of South Bend. Inc, 18A-CT-00049Glon heard three pops in her leg after hospital staff moved her post-surgery.
When the epidural wore off, x-rays revealed three fractures in her leg. Glon alleged she was injured as a result of negligent hospital care. The hospital filed a motion for summary judgment, arguing that Glon failed to offer expert testimony to contradict the medical review panel's conclusion that there was no negligence. The trial court granted this motion, and Glon now appeals - arguing that a jury should have determined when the three fractures occurred because it is a genuine issue of material fact.
