Colorado Supreme Court dismisses appeal from Denver hospital being sued for infections

Colorado Politics: Colorado’s Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal from a Denver hospital that sought to bar company documents released through an open records request from being used in a lawsuit against the facility.

“The Supreme Court’s swift rejection of the hospital’s hope to bury these documents emphasizes that hospitals must be held accountable for endangering the public,” said David S. Woodruff, an attorney for the plaintiffs. 

Last week, the justices heard oral arguments in the litigation against Porter Adventist Hospital, which was previously under investigation for failing to properly sterilize surgical equipment. More than 200 plaintiffs or surviving spouses sued the hospital, alleging infections and injuries as a result of their surgery.
