(Unpublished appellate court decision dismissing the appeal of a plaintiff who sought recovery from the defendant hospital for alleged medical malpractice. Plaintiff had sued Loretto Hospital after her involuntary admission to defendant’s psychiatric unit. The trial court granted defendant’s motion to strike plaintiff’s amended complaint for failure to attach an affidavit from a qualified health professional as required by section 2-622(a)(1) of the Code of Civil Procedure. Plaintiff filed a second amended complaint, which was also dismissed and plaintiff appealed. On appeal, plaintiff failed to prepare a proper record and her brief did not comply with supreme court rules governing appeals. The appellate court concluded that it could not discern the issue on review, and, therefore, the appeal was dismissed).
