Court of Appeals of Texas, Fort Worth.

A.R., INDIVIDUALLY AND AS NATURAL PARENT, NEXT FRIEND, AND LEGAL GUARDIAN OF A.R., MINOR APPELLANT v. MARC A. WILSON, M.D. AND OB/GYN SPECIALISTS, LLC APPELLEES

NO. 02-16-00429-CV

Decided: February 23, 2017

PANEL: MEIER, GABRIEL, and SUDDERTH, JJ.

MEMORANDUM OPINION 1

We have considered the petition for permissive interlocutory appeal by Appellant A.R., individually and as natural parent, next friend, and legal guardian of A.R., minor.2 See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code Ann. § 51.014(d), (f) (West Supp. 2016); Tex. R. App. P. 28.3(a), (f), (j). In the petition, Appellant asks us to determine whether civil practice and remedies code section 74.153 applies to medical care provided in an obstetrical unit when the patient was never evaluated or treated in a hospital emergency department. See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code Ann. § 74.153 (West 2011).

In light of this court's disposition of the same issue in D.A. v. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Denton, No. 02-16-00148-CV, 2017 WL 632907 (Tex. App.—Fort Worth Feb. 16, 2017, no pet. h.), in which we concluded that civil practice and remedies code section 74.153 does not apply to such medical care, we deny Appellant's petition for permissive appeal.
