My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: Pennsylvania.
My brain surgeon forgot to order pain medication for me and I suffered the worst headache you can imagine for more than an hour before I got out of bed and went out on the floor to find a staircase I might throw myself from. There was much commotion and yelling (in my surgical ear) as nurses tried to get me back into bed. Finally the meds. came but the damage was done. My nursing was negatively affected and I escaped the hospital less than a day after brain surgery. I wouldn't be asking about it here if my doctor had acknowledged it but he claimed total ignorance both times I asked. It was also hard for my husband who tried to get me the help I pleaded for.
