On July 7 I went to Texas Southwest Emergency room asthma

Customer Question
On July 7 I went...
On July 7 I went to Texas Harris Southwest Emergency room for an asthma attack, along with chest and abdominal pain. I was taken to the back weighed, and had by blood pressure and oxygen taken and told to wait because there were no beds. I had informed them upon arrival that I was an asthmatic and I was also having chest pains when I tried to breath in deeply to get enough air. I waited with my grandmother for more than 2 hours without being seen. I returned to the reception desk on 2 separate occasions to ask what was going on with the wait, because I couldn't breath and having chest pain. Another waiting paitent said they had been waiting for more than 3 hours and another couple became upset and drove to another hospital. I again asked for help and it was suggested I either wait or go to another emergency room. I left with my grandmother and went to care now where I was immediately seen and treated for bronchitis and given X-rays along with several shots, breathing treatments and antibiotics. I filed a complaint with the BBB and when I spoke on 2 occasions to the paitent advocate, the attending nurse states I was reevaluated and I was not. They have completely disregarded how serious my medics situation was and I want to know what can be done to make them realize the error in their false statements and dismissal of my claim and treatment

Whether or not this has any legal action I can take and if it's even worth pursuing
Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Not a lawsuit. Any case against a medical provider has to go through the medical malpractice protocols but the problem now in Texas is that it is just too expensive to pursue a case where there aren't hundreds of thousands in damages. You can call some lawyers that do medical malpractice and ask what they think but they are going to tell you it's just not economically feasible to proceed.

However, you can file a complaint with the state licensing board and they can pursue the various medical providers. You can start at https://www.dshs.texas.gov/facilities/complaints.aspx

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
