On 29 July, 2008, I delivered my third child via natural childbirth in our local hospital. I was discharged 48 hours later. At no time during my post-delivery did a nurse or physician check any of my bleeding. They stated it was normal and just made sure I was able to urinate since I received an epidural. Two weeks after arriving home I was still bleeding as heavily as when I left the hospital. On ...

Spinal Tap Error By Er Doctor

About 5 years ago an ER doctor gave me a spinal tap for severe headache complaints.  The containers that contained the spinal fluid were put in the incorrect order so another spinal tap was needed.  This lead to a hospital stay and more procedures.  I did not initially file suit because I did not have any adverse symptoms from the procedures.  Now, I have lower back problems several times a year.  Is it too late ...

Negligent Fracture Treatment?

Hi. I have a question about whether the particulars of my medical treatment qualify as medical malpractice(specifically, negligent fracture treatment). On July 25, 2009, I was involved in a motorcycle accident. I was treated at a local ER where xrays showed a broken ankle and hand. Both injuries were temporarily bandaged, and I was referred to a local Orthopaedic office for further treatment. On July 27, 2009, I first visited the Orthopaedic Office. I told ...
