ROSE A. CHAPMAN, ET AL. v. WELLMONT HOLSTON VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER
Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys:

Wendal D. Jackson, Bristol, Tennessee, for the appellants, Rose A. Chapman and Alfred C. Chapman.

Russell W. Adkins, Kingsport, Tennessee, for the appellee, Wellmont Holston Valley Medical Center, a member of Wellmont Health System.

Judge: SWINEY

Rose A. Chapman and Alfred C. Chapman (“Plaintiffs”) sued Wellmont Holston Valley Medical Center (“the Hospital”) regarding a fall Ms. Chapman suffered while a patient at the Hospital. The Trial Court entered judgment upon the jury’s verdict finding and holding that the Hospital was not at fault. Plaintiffs appeal raising one issue regarding whether the Trial Court erred in granting the Hospital’s motion in limine to exclude testimony about an apology and offer to pay bills allegedly made by one of the Hospital’s nurses. We find this issue has been waived, and we affirm.
