Who is to pay for a medical bill that was left behind by an inmate furloughed by the Zanesville Police Department. This is the question that Genesis HealthCare System wants answered in a lawsuit filed against the City of Zanesville. It has been the policy of the department to suspend the sentence of a misdemeanor violator if they need to seek medical attention. Last year, 44-year old Orville Dunn of Athens Lane, complained of chest pains. Following policy, his sentence was suspended so he could seek medical attention. Dunn underwent a cardiac catherization Good Samaritan and spent two days in the hospital. Genesis believes that the city should pay for the $9,000 tab, but in the eyes of the police department, Dunn was not an inmate during the time he was hospitalized. No trial date has been set.
