I am sorry to read about your fiance's difficulties.

Yes, she can sue the hospital for malpractice, but she must file the lawsuit within two years of the incident. Otherwise, she would be time-barred from doing so.

She would need the assistance of a local Attorney who handles medical malpractice cases to assist her with the case.

You can use the following sites to find local Attorneys:
