Publisher Description

Appellant, Florence M. Strom, filed health-care liability claims against appellees, Memorial Hermann Hospital System d/b/a Memorial Hospital Southwest and Memorial Hospital System (the hospital) and Dr. Henry Blum, individually and d/b/a Sugar Land Orthopedic Associates (Dr. Blum). Strom appeals to challenge orders that dismissed those claims, with prejudice, on the grounds that the expert reports she provided to support those claims under section 13.01(d) of article 4590i, the Medial Liability and Insurance Improvement Act, did not comply with section 13.01(r)(6) of that statute. *fn3 We address (1) whether Strom's expert reports constituted a fair summary of the standard of care required by Dr. Blum and the Hospital, (2) whether the trial court erred by refusing to grant Strom an extension of time to amend her expert reports, (3) whether Dr. Blum waived his challenge to the adequacy of Strom's expert reports by not asserting the challenge until 180 days after Strom filed suit, (4) whether the trial court erred in awarding $5,000 in attorney's fees to the hospital, (5) the constitutionality of article 4590i, section 13.01(d), and (6) whether the trial court erred in dismissing Strom's claims of fraud, intentional and fraudulent misrepresentations, and "unnecessary surgery" against Dr. Blum. We affirm.
