hello my mom was rushed to the magee woman hospital emergency department  because her incission broke opin while in the shower my mom had 27 staples removed  3 days befor that day prior to having a opin hysterectomy  after rushing my mom to the hospital  they told me that they gave her morphine pain medication and that i can go to get a juice or somthing to eat and she would be safe while in ther care well after i returned i couldnt find my mom anywhere

i ran to the gliding doors that go outside the emergency room and as i looked across the parking lot i saw a lady knealing down and talking to a patient whom was lying face down in muddy grass as it was raining the lady said noone came running to help her and she told me to get a welchair and helped me get my mom in the chair an take her inside . the nurses said they were busy and didnt know she was outside in that condition. [continued below]....
.....  and a medical staff said my mom asked her if she can help her outside the door to smoke and so she did but said she got a call to  comeback inside

so she thought my mom would be ok neer the door standing against the door holding on to the iv pool after she went in the security gaurd said he returned from his lunch break and saw my mom standing ther smoking a cigerette and told her to walk 10 feet away from the doors to smoke so i asked to please view the cameras ther to see why  noone helped my mom she was lying face down 10 feet away from the emergency room door in muddy grass and only wearing a gown and no slippers and a 9 inch opin incission with packing inside  they refused to show the camera my mom could have died perhaps i was not at the hospital it happend aug 10 2009.

Amazing

This is too bad and everything but she was rushed to emergency, had been given Morphine, was only wearing a gown and no slippers and had a 9 inch open incision with packing inside and holding an IV pole and it's raining out?  In addition, of course, she had recently had a serious operation and several staples had come out.

Then with all that going on you left her to get something to eat?  AND then she just HAD to go outside to smoke?  That's just nuts! I can't imagine leaving someone in that condition.  An emergency room is a very busy place and the people there are attending to many people with serious issues so she was your responsibility.

Maybe people didn't respond correctly, I don't know, but this whole thing would not have happened if you hadn't left her in this condition and if she wasn't apparently hooked on cigarettes.  It seems to me like you and she certainly share a large part of the blame. Yes, she could have died but I think you are both lucky she didn't.

I'm sure this will make you mad but based on what you posted here, that's how I see it.

i reported it now because for 2 whole years i have been talking with lawyers about it but if you read my whole report you would have known why i waited 2 years first of all after this happend to her

AUTHOR: im her son i saw what happend - (USA)

 because for to years i have been doing everything step by step  that the us department of justice told me so they can review all the case and  1 year after they told me that  based on the review they needed to  send my moms case to the criminal division section of the department of health and human services for further actions to be taken the reason i posted what happend on this wesite is because  i still see the same doctors walking around  i work in the lab section partime so i know who is working

The obvious question would be, why are you reporting it now? Unfortunately, she needed a smoke, and of course can't smoke in the hospital.

It was almost her last act.
