This is exactly what we expected from her.
News broke yesterday that Joan Rivers death was deemed avoidable — due to improper procedure by Yorkville Endoscopy Center, and that just makes us mad.
Well, Melissa Rivers is even MORE infuriated, and rightfully so.
In fact, she is reportedly planning to file a multimillion-dollar wrongful death lawsuit against them, due to their negligence in treating her mother.
Melissa’s lawyers, Jeffrey B. Bloom and Ben Rubinowitz, released a statement in regards to her thoughts and how “disappointed” she is by everything.
“Our client, Melissa Rivers, is terribly disappointed to learn of the multiple failings on the part of medical personnel and the clinic as evidenced by the CMS report.
As any of us would be, Ms. Rivers is outraged by the misconduct and mismanagement now shown to have occurred before, during and after the procedure. Moving forward, Ms. Rivers will direct her efforts towards ensuring that what happened to her mother will not occur again with any other patient.”
So, what they mean by ensuring this won’t happen again, is they’re planning to sue them, right??
We hope so, because we absolutely agree that something like this should NEVER happen again.
Our thoughts are with Melissa and her family during this tough time.
