Chrissy Hollis has filed a federal lawsuit claiming providers at Naval Hospital Jacksonville didn’t review her husband’s medical records or ask questions prior to his procedure, which would have revealed obstructive sleep apnea, reports News4Jax.

“I said, ‘He has gout. He has sleep apnea,’ And as soon as I said, ‘sleep apnea,’ the eyes just lit up and the questions were over,” Chrissy Hollis said.

By then, Shon Hollis was in a vegetative state. Chrissy Hollis said by the time the procedure was over, Shon Hollis was unable to move his body or communicate.
