5945 - Jane Doe v. Oconee Memorial Hospital

In this civil action, Jane Doe appeals the circuit court's order dismissing her complaint against Oconee Memorial Hospital and Greenville Health System (the Hospital and GHS; collectively, Respondents) pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6), SCRCP. Doe argues the circuit court erred in dismissing her causes of action for negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress and in dismissing her complaint when her motion to amend her complaint was still pending. We affirm in part, reverse in part, and remand to the circuit court to allow Doe an opportunity to amend her complaint.
