LAKELAND — After nearly two years, the first in a series of medical malpractice cases against Lakeland Regional Health Systems has reached an “amicable” settlement.  

Lakeland resident Carrie Monk has reached a settlement for her allegations that OB-GYN doctors working at the hospital used the ‘wrong stitches’ when performing a total laparoscopy hysterectomy, her attorney Tom Saunders of Bartow-based Saunders Law Firm confirmed to The Ledger.

Under the terms of the agreement, Saunders can not legally disclose what financial or other compensation was given to Monk. 

“Yes, I do believe it was truly amicable,” he said. 

Monk was among the first to file a case in 10th Judicial Circuit Court of Polk County in July 2020 against Lakeland Regional Health, its medical center and the doctors who performed the surgery. It focused on the key issue of whether it was medically acceptable to use permanent rather than absorbable sutures when performing a hysterectomy.
