A woman in Horry County has filed a wrongful death suit against her husband’s dentist, Taurean Hodges, and his practice after her husband sustained fatal injuries while under their care.
Kenneth Williamson attended Inlet Premier Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry for recommended treatment of tartar and extractions on August 26, 2020. He was on a number of medications, such as blood pressure and prescription muscle relaxers. Flora Williamson claims proper medical assessment and sedation were not followed considering her husband’s medical conditions.
“Hodges had previously prescribed four .25 milligram tablets of Halcion with the instruction to take four pills 30 minutes before the appointment, according to the suit. This was four times the maximum recommended dosage for Williamson’s medical conditions and medications,” reports The Sun News.
The suit also alleges that no monitors were places on Williamson and that Hodges was practising sedation without a permit.
