SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A Washington County, Iowa, couple accused University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics doctors of negligence Monday, court documents show.

The charge stems from a Feb. 22, 2008, incident in which Tamara Stellmach underwent procedures — including but not limited to transcranial magnetic stimulation — at UIHC and the Clinics Center for Digestive Diseases, according to a lawsuit.

Documents said UIHC officials allegedly failed to obtain consent from Stellmach before performing the procedure and failed to diagnose and treat her condition appropriately.

Stellmach's damages reportedly include past and future loss of income, physical and mental pain and suffering, loss of full body, and loss of enjoyment of life.
