Exeter Hospital faces lawsuit from latest drug diversion case
The lawsuit in Rockingham County Superior Court comes roughly three months after the former EMT, Peter McGlynn, pleaded guilty in federal court to obtaining controlled substances by fraud. He is expected to be sentenced Aug. 28.
The woman, identified in the lawsuit as Jane Doe, is a 33-year-old married mother of two from Stratham. She was not infected with any virus by McGlynn. But the woman’s lawyer said her client endured nearly an hour of excruciating pain, until she was given more fentanyl.
The woman and her husband drove themselves to the hospital and learned the pain was caused by an ectopic pregnancy, the lawsuit says. An emergency room doctor prescribed 100 micrograms of fentanyl to the woman, and directed a nurse to administer the drug, according to Gray. But the nurse “delegated that important task to Peter McGlynn, an EMT whose primary responsibility was typically limited to providing care outside the hospital setting,” the lawsuit says.
