My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: Missouri
This was about 6 months ago, I went into the hospital for 2 days because I was severely anemic (got a blood infusion). While in the hospital they didn't give me anything to prevent blood clots, one day later after be discharged from the hospital. I was in so much pain and then I went back in the hospital for 7 days and I had a pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs and heart).
Even though I don't have a history of blood clots. I kind of feel like if I was lying in bed for two days and they knew that blood clots were a possibility that the hospital is kind of at fault.
Could this be considered malpractice or what actions could I pursue?
