Court reviews whether the trial court properly granted summary judgment in a medical malpractice case

NANCY LUNA v. ROGER DEVERSA, M.D. and HAMILTON COUNTY (Tenn. Ct. App. June 17, 2010)

This appeal arises from a medical malpractice claim. A surgeon performed a procedure on the plaintiff at the defendant hospital. The defendant hospitalist physician monitored the plaintiff's post-surgery recovery. The plaintiff filed this lawsuit asserting that the defendant hospitalist was negligent in releasing her from the hospital prematurely. The defendant hospitalist filed a motion for summary judgment, as did the hospital. The trial court granted summary judgment to both. We affirm.
