A woman is suing a Broadalbin doctor and St. Mary's Hospital, alleging negligence and careless treatment of a deceased Amsterdam resident.

According to Montgomery County Supreme Court documents entered into the court in Fonda on Dec. 19, 2012, Barbara Miller, administratrix of the estate of the late Ann M. Supan, brought the complaint against Dr. William Mayer, Mayer and Cope Family Practice, St. Mary's Hospital at Amsterdam, and Ascension Health System.

The court documents state that from Dec. 24 to Dec. 31, 2010, Mayer agreed to undertake medical care for Supan and performed "certain procedures" and care and treatment, "while also failing to provide necessary care and treatment." The document states that the care "was not in accord with good, proper, competent, accepted, approved and standard medical techniques, practices and procedures."

The lawsuit claims that Supan was so negligently and carelessly treated that it caused her severe and serious pain and injury, and ultimately her death on Dec. 31 of that year.

According to the documents, it claims that the negligence included things like failing to diagnose and treat a serious medical condition and failing to use approved methods in general use in the medical community while caring for and treating Supan.

"The carelessness, negligence and malpractice of the defendant, William D. Mayer, M.D., was the direct and proximate cause of the death of ... Ann A. Supan," the document reads.

Supan is survived by children, the documents say.

On behalf of the estate, Miller is suing for compensation, for monetary expenses in connection with the injuries, treatment, the eventual death, and the funeral of Supan.

Documents show that Miller and the estate of Supan are being represented by attorney William White, of Brennan & White, LLP, out of Queensbury.

A spokesperson for St. Mary's Hospital said Friday afternoon that the hospital is "not aware of any pending litigation in the matter referenced."

Calls to Mayer and attorney William White were not returned before presstime.
