Innovis, doctor face malpractice suit

A Park Rapids man has filed a medical malpractice suit against Innovis Health and one of its physicians, claiming improper administration of medications that claimed the life of his wife in 2008.

Robert Kaufman, on behalf of the late Marjorie Kaufman, claims Dr. Rae Keashly administered seven times the amount of methotrexate to his wife for a month in late 2008, allegedly causing a toxicity that eventually caused numerous side effects and from which she died one month later.

Innovis and Keashly admit treating Mrs. Kaufman but deny any negligence in the administration of her medications.

A pre-trial hearing is set for Jan. 26 with trial scheduled for March 14.
