Hospital and doctor deny negligence in Glenn Frey’s death | Page Six

Hospital and doctor deny negligence in Glenn Frey’s death | Page Six: "The New York hospital and doctor that treated Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey are denying any wrongdoing in their treatment of the late musician.

Frey’s widow, Cindy Frey, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in January, claiming Mount Sinai Hospital and gastroenterologist Dr. Steven Itzkowitz were negligent in their care of Frey’s ulcerative colitis in October and November 2015.

Both Mount Sinai and Itzkowitz responded to the lawsuit, claiming in legal documents obtained by Page Six via The Blast, “the injuries of the plaintiff [Frey] were caused in whole or part by the culpable conduct of the plaintiff…”

In addition to negligence, Cindy claimed the hospital and Itzkowitz failed to “promptly and properly assess the patient for respiratory issues” and ignored an infection, according to court papers."
