Honestly, I'm not sure if it is malpractice. I definitely feel that how my case was handled was not professional and did not meet standards of care. Essentially, I believe that I was turned away because they suspected my insurance companies would not pay. When in acutliaty, the docotor felt I needed to be there, and they did not actually call and ask the insurance company.
I guess I'm asking what my options are in your opinion/experience. Do you think it meets the level of malpractice? And is there a way to request a mediation, with legal representation there, if they do not address my concnerns? I don't think it was the medical provider who saw me directly who made a mistake, I feel it was the hospitalist (admitting doctor) and the hospital itself.
