Kaiser patient in Georgia files lawsuit against the HMO for inadequate psychiatric care

In March of 2014, Alex Blatt, 70, and his brother-in-law, Murray Deustch, filed a lawsuit against Kaiser Foundation Health Plan Georgia for the poor mental health care services Mr. Blatt received from Kaiser. As a result of Kaiser’s inadequate care, in March of 2012, Mr. Blatt had a “psychotic episode in which he killed his wife Eva and attempted to commit suicide by slashing his wrists.” (Source: Blatt v.
