I recently was in the hospital E.R. department, about 6 weeks ago. they were aware that I had several risk factors that could cause me to pass out. Well I did pass out and hit the floor hard, because they had left the bed rails down. I woke up with a lot of pain on the right side of my fore head. i was calling for help and trying to scoot my way down and push my foot under the closed curtain so someone might see me. someone finally either heard me or saw my foot and all hell broke loose after that.LOOOOOOOOOOOng story. they kept me in the hospital for 6 days because I demonstrating many neurological problems and they are not getting any better but worse. I went through the patient advocate system to try and reach a settlement out of court but they came back with. Mrs. Hall we have investigated the E.R., ICU, and Cardiac departments... this is ll the department I was in during those 6 days and we fully admit was our negligence that caused your injury and we are implementing furthering education to keep this from happening again. My attorney says they never settle unless they know you are serious about suing. He says they are hoping I will just go away. He also says once they hear from him and realize I am serious, and given they have already admitted fault, he thinks they will settle quickly. Just wondering if any of you have been through anything like this. Also if you suffered a head injury that caused neurological issues like migranes, sensitivity to light,sound and taste,memory loss, unsteady on my feet, at first seziures now they are gone. How long did your syptoms last. The hospital neurologist told me my symptoms could last anywere from days to weeks to years and possibly life. Anybody have anything to share as far as experiences or advice?
