Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.I'm sorry to hear about your mom. The treatment she is experiencing sounds awful, and far below what would be expected from medical professionals. With respect to his license, you'll need to file a complaint with the Texas Medical Board. If you click on that link, it will take you to some more information and you can even file the complaint online. You can read about the enforcement process and the possible sanctions here.I would also encourage you, if you have not done so already, to contact a personal injury attorney about a possible medical malpractice claim. You raise some serious concerns -including your mother laying in her own waste, the infection being allowed to spread, the antibiotic never being put in after they told you it was, etc. Clearly more damage has been done, and now your mother faces additional recovery time as well as more pain and suffering, to say nothing of what future care and treatment she may need.Medical malpractice claims are generally taken on a contingency basis, meaning you only pay a fee if the lawyer is able to recover money for you. The Texas State Bar Association has a lawyer referral service that can put you in touch with a lawyer and set up an initial 30 minute consultation for $20. If your mother is unable to attend or participate by phone, I would recommend she execute a Power of Attorney for the time being so that one of you is able to manage her affairs for her if she doesn't have one currently. You'll also want to see about getting as many of your mom's medical records as you can prior to a consult with a lawyer since they will want to review those to render a qualified opinion.If you need further information or clarification, please reply and I'll be happy to assist you.
