Janet501 Posted July 6, 2004 Report Share Posted July 6, 2004 On May-29-01 my Mama died in a local hospital it has been 3 years now but the pain has not let up. Even though she was 71 she was a very young 71 year old and did not look a day over 45. She loved life and always told us 4 children that we could get old and sit around a house if we wanted to but she WASN'T and she didn't. Anyone that knew her or met her loved her. She was dating an ex-manfriend from 40 years ago and 30 days before she was killed by "medicial treatment" she was walking on the beach and doing fun things with him and all of us was so happy to see her young at heart and loving and enjoying her life. Then in May-2001 a heart doctor convinced her she needed open heart surgery or would not make it through the weekend " we later found out from our lawyer that probably she did not need the surgery" she really suffered from the doctors mistakes and the hospitals mistakes and even to a malfunction of a heart pump that ruptured inside of her then a nurse in a careless and negligent manner forced the NT tube down my Mamas nostril causing a severe nosebleed that filled her lung. The doctor chose to divide her innominate vein to surgically open her chest and he KNEW it would or could cause Mama additional problems the doctor owed Mama a duty to attain her "informed consent" prior to doing this procedure which he failed to do. It just goes on and on and is unbelievable all the mistakes that was made and I hurt so bad to know how my Mama suffered in the hands of this doctor and hospital. My Mama was a great big LOSS and I want all of you to PLEASE be careful of the many many heart doctors doing unnecessery heart surgery. God Bless Our Wonderful Moms.
