    There is not, however ANY evidence that the care the OP's mother was negligent. It is possible for there to be injury, including facial trauma, without there having been any negligence. Since the hospital is barred by Federal law by showing the chart to the OP, the OP does not know what has been documented - he knows only that one doctor stated that the fall had not been documented. Which could mean that it isn't, or could mean that the doctor was mistaken, or could mean that it's been documented since the doctor last looked.

    I don't know that there wasn't any negligence but I don't know that there was. I don't know what was or was not documented but there's no proof either way. It's impossible to say for certain, in either direction.

    And neither does anyone else here, no matter what their past experience has been or what they "feel".


    Two things I am tired of typing: 1.) A wrongful termination does not mean that you were fired for something you didn't do; it means that you were fired for a reason prohibited by law. 2.) The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding contract or CBA expressly says otherwise. If it does, the terms of the contract apply.

    When you are helpless and being ignored it is really traumatic. If you are helpless, 90 years old and possibly dealing with some dementia, it must seem like one of Dante's circles of hell if you are being ignored.
    While there are most certainly problems with everything in life (particularly something involving patients that have needs and staff that must divide themselves among a half dozen or more patients of similar needs), to castigate and disparage quite literally EVERYONE in a particular profession or field of endeavor as a result of a bad experience is is wrong.

    That is true, but I can still understand why someone might feel that way, whether I agree with them or not.

    What's obvious to me is many of the posters have not EVER worked in a hospital or have any close family members who have.

    There are a great many people who act out irrationally, but that doesn't excuse them.

    Would I be justified in disparaging an entire race of people because I was stabbed as a youth? I suspect I'd be hung out to dry if I even tried. Likewise, on professions/careers (a college professor neighbor molested dozens of the kids I grew up with and his peers and local government officials stuck up for him at his trial). All because one's experience is tainted by a bad experience or two doesn't excuse us from disparaging everyone in that race, profession, city, or state as a result.

    True... I can agree with that because after seeing what you post, I have very little faith in anyone who calls themselves a "tax professional".


    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.
