Man enters hospital for tonsil surgery claims he left with GPS tracking

first_imgI don’t know anyone who enjoys going to the hospital, especially when surgery is involved. But usually, if you have an operation and then get the all clear to leave it’s a time of relief and relaxation. For Michael Woolman of Lincoln, Nebraska, it was a time of confusion and disbelief.Woolman attended Baylor Health Hospital for tonsil and sinus surgery. After the surgery had been completed he needed to go to the bathroom and discovered his armpit was bloody. Although at the time he thought nothing more of it, he later discovered that the surgeon had implanted him with a GPS tracking device without knowledge or consent being given.Now Woolman has brought a lawsuit against Baylor Health Hospital for breaching his civil rights and medical malpractice.The lawsuit is a difficult one to comprehend mainly because it seems Woolman has written his own lawsuit documents which are less than clear. For example, in the section asking what relief he wants, he simply states the “pain and suffering and mental anguish” the hospital put him through rather than describing what his desirable outcome is. There’s also no detail on how he discovered a GPS chip had been implanted.If you read the lawsuit filing it’s clear to see this is not written by a lawyer and is actually incredibly difficult to make sense of due to the style of writing. Here’s Woolman’s description of what happened as an example:If it turns out to be a valid claim, then Baylor could be in serious trouble. Carrying out a surgical procedure without consent on its own is serious, but to have a system in place for implanting and then tracking patients as well takes this to a whole new level.I find it hard to believe a hospital would choose to do this and see no logical reason why they would. We won’t know all the circumstances and details surrounding this claim, as well as Baylor’s response to it until the lawsuit comes to court.Read more at the Dallas Observerlast_img read more
