OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The parents of a brain-damaged three-year-old child want an Oklahoma County judge to stop a group of physicians they are suing from terminating care for the child and the rest of his family.
Andrew and Keri Hale of Oklahoma City filed requests for an injunction and a temporary restraining order Tuesday against HCA Health Services of Oklahoma, Inc. They ask District Judge Bryan Dixon to block the health care providers’ plan to discontinue care for the child, his parents and his siblings through the OU Physicians group and OU Physicians for Women’s Health.
The requests say the physicians group is taking "punitive and retaliatory action" against the child and his family over a malpractice lawsuit that alleges problems during the child’s 2011 birth.
Dixon scheduled an Oct. 16 hearing.
