Posted on Monday, August 15th, 2016 at 7:03 pm    

The family of 77-year-old Waunakee resident Thomas Pliner filed a medical malpractice lawsuit in Dane County Circuit Court on Friday, August 12 against UnityPoint Health-Meriter in Madison and Dr. Sean Yetman.

Yetman was a doctor at the hospital and operated on Pliner, who died following a heart surgery. The hospital subsequently terminated Yetman, who later surrendered his medical license during an investigation relating to the death. Meriter terminated Yetman in October 2011 after hiring a consultant to review records of the seven patients he operated on during his time at the hospital, state medical examining board records showed. The cases include two deaths, which gave way to a state investigation in 2013 and caused Yetman to surrender his license in 2014.
