Melissa Rivers filed a malpractice lawsuit this week against the doctors and clinics that treated her mother before her death, according to USA Today. Joan Rivers was undergoing a throat procedure at the Yorkville Endoscopy Clinic last year when she fell unconscious and eventually died. Rivers’ daughter alleges the lack of management and cares the facility led to her mother’s death, and even claims a photo was taken of Rivers while she lay unconscious on the operating table. A federal investigation has concluded that the clinic did indeed make serious errors during and after Rivers’ procedure, including failing to keep proper medication records.
