No Thank You, Nurses

     EDINBURG, Texas (CN) – A man’s penis split open when a Thank You Nurses employee removed a catheter from him before deflating it, the patient claims in court.
     Cruz Ramirez and his wife sued Thank You Nurses Limited in Hidalgo County Court. Cruz Ramirez claims Thank You Nurses was giving him medical care at home while he recovered from surgery.
     “Part of this care involved the removal of a catheter device from his penis,” the complaint states. “Defendant’s employee negligently failed to properly deflate the device before removal. As a result, when the device was removed from plaintiff’s penis, he suffered grave and serious injury.
     “In effect, plaintiff’s penis was split open.”
     Ramirez claim the “severe laceration of the penis” left him prone to urinary tract infections and caused him to lose “the ability to engage in marital relations.”
     Thank You Nurses Limited declined to comment Wednesday.
     The Cruzes seek actual and exemplary damages for medical negligence.
     They are represented by Jose G. Rivas of McAllen.
