A bus driver is suing a Connecticut hospital, claiming staff watched a baseball game rather than treat his painful erection.Daren Scott claims he was driving customers from Boston to New York in April 2009 when he got a persistent and disabling erection, the Associated Press reported Monday.
He had previously been diagnosed with priaprism, a condition that causes persistent, painful erections.
When he checked into an emergency room affiliated with Yale-New Haven Hospital, staff told him he had to move his bus, leading to more pain, Scott’s suit claims.
While waiting for treatment, Scott said facility staff watched a baseball game on TV and ignored his plea for help, according to his suit.
“Notwithstanding this call for help, the staff, including the physicians, continued to watch the baseball game and ignore plaintiff’s condition,” Scott’s lawsuit claims.
Scott is seeking $2 million.
The hospital has denied Scott’s claims, saying he failed to seek immediate treatment and that he waited too long to file suit after his alleged injuries.
