Customer Question
My father was given 10...
My father was given 10 times to much bllod thinner 15 years ago at Wilson-n-Jones Hospital which caused a bleed on his brain and he has had seizures ever since. This was around 15 years ago. Recently he was in Wilson-n-Jones and when he was discharged they failed to remove a needle that was open and exposed from his port. He had to go to a nursing facility for rehab, so the needle was left in for 9 days I believe because they had to wait for doctor's orders to remove it. My father has COPD and no immune system. He is now back in the hospital in Denton. We do not take him to Wilson-n-Jones because of the neglect but this last time the ambulance would not take him to Denton where all his doctors are. What can we do about hospital neglect?

I think Tuesday it will be 2 weeks since he was released from Wilson-n-Jones Hospital where they failed to remove needle from his port.

Then the claim is not time barred. This is a case of malpractice and can be pursued. I would have a lawyer try to settle before suing.
