CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A third lawsuit was filed Monday involving the deaths of patients over wrongful insulin injections at a West Virginia veterans hospital.

Charleston attorney Tony O’Dell filed the federal lawsuit in the death of John William Hallman. The 87-year-old Navy veteran died at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg in June 2018. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Hallman’s son and daughter and seeks unspecified damages.

Five months after he died, Hallman’s death certificate was amended and his immediate cause of death was listed as “unexplained hypoglycemia,” or low blood sugar. The lawsuit alleged an unidentified employee had given Hallman a shot of insulin despite no physician’s order being issued.

The lawsuit asserts that prior to Hallman’s death, the night shift on the same hospital floor “experienced sudden severe unexplained patient decline leading to patient death on at least 9 occasions.”
