Ed McMahon Sues Cedars-Sinai Hospital Over Botched Treatment

Ed McMahon, the long-time sidekick to talk show host Johnny Carson, sued a Los Angeles hospital on Friday, claiming doctors failed to diagnose his broken neck after a fall and discharged him without taking an X-ray.

McMahon, 85, also accused Cedars-Sinai Medical Center of messing up two spine operations, and the entertainer claims to have suffered months of discomfort and pain.

McMahon's lawsuit states that when he visited Cedars-Sinai after a March 2007 fall at the home of investor Robert Day he told a doctor he felt like a "bobble-head" doll because of his spine, but they still did not take an X-ray for two weeks, and as a result discharged him with a broken neck.

The lawsuit also named Robert Day, accusing him of negligence over the condition of a ramp-like staircase at his property on which McMahon fell.

In recent months McMahon sought to save his multimillion-dollar Beverly Hills home from foreclosure, becoming one of the most prominent people to be caught up in the U.S. housing downturn and credit squeeze.
