The widow of deceased Eagles singer/guitarist Glenn Frey has filed a lawsuit against the hospital that treated the musician, alleging wrongful death.

In the suit, filed Tuesday in New York Supreme Court, Cindy Frey names the Mount Sinai Hospital, Icahn School of Medicine as well as physician Steven Itzkowitz.

“At all times herein mentioned, the defendants each undertook and agreed to render medical care and treatment to Glenn Frey and did render certain care starting on October 19, 2015,” the suit reads.

Frey died on Jan. 18 in 2016 at age 67.

The suit alleges that the defendants “were negligent and careless in the services rendered or and on behalf of Glenn Frey.”

Among the alleged negligence: Failing to “promptly and properly render medical care; causing, permitting and allowing preventable injury and death; failing to promptly and properly treat ulcerative colitis and associated symptoms and diseases of the bowel; failing to promptly and properly assess the patient for respiratory issues; failing to promptly and properly diagnose and treat infection” and “failing to promptly and properly hospitalize the patient.”

“As a result of the foregoing acts of negligence, Glenn Frey was rendered sick, lame and disabled, suffered injuries, pain, mental anguish, was compelled to seek medical care and attention, incurred expenses thereof, and was permanently injured and disabled until the time of his death,” the suit reads.

The suit seeks unspecified damages.
