Mass. woman sues Nashua hospital over mother’s death

A Massachusetts woman has sued a New Hampshire hospital for $2 million about three years after her mother died of a heart attack, saying doctors failed to diagnose it.

Mariann Gobbi recently filed the lawsuit against St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua in federal court in Concord.

The Telegraph of Nashua reported that the hospital denied any responsibility for Ann Blanchette’s death. A spokesperson said it won’t comment on ongoing litigation.

The suit says Blanchette was visiting Gobbi in August 2011 when she complained about pain in her neck and right arm. She went to the emergency room and was admitted about an hour later.

Gobbi said doctors failed to consider her mother was suffering a heart attack despite her symptoms. An EKG the next day showed Blanchette suffered the attack.
