Suit claims high school staff endangered diabetic student
WAVE-TV reports Melissa Rowe filed suit on behalf of her daughter, Emily Rowe, in Jefferson Circuit Court Thursday. The suit accuses the administrators of negligence for failing to keep track of necessary medicines and failing to notify Rowe of her daughter’s diabetic episodes.
The suit asks a jury to find the five negligent and award compensatory and punitive damages. It also demands that Jefferson County Public Schools certify sufficient staffers are trained to manage care for students with juvenile diabetes.
A spokeswoman with the school district says per policy, they do not comment on pending litigation.
