A surviving spouse is suing a physician and medical facility, alleging medical negligence in the death of her husband. Deborah S. Empey is represented by attorneys Wesley T. Straw and Matthew D. Emerson of Emerson Straw PL in St. Petersburg.

On July 2, 2017, Walter J. Empey, went to the emergency room at Morton Plant Hospital because he was experiencing chest tightness, severe chest pain, alarming respiratory distress and coughing paroxysms since the night before. Despite informing staff of his family history from heart complications, the suit says, the defendants never provided Empey with cardiology or pulmonology consultation and he was released from the hospital.
