Ok, about 3 weeks ago I was biking and had a bad wreck up on the trail that broke both bones in my left leg and left a bad wound. I was in the dirt about 30 mins with the open wound. I was taken to the hospital via ambulance and while there was not properly cleaned. The extent of wound care done was to simply pour some hydrogen peroxide over the wound and cover it. About a week later at my Ortho Pre-Op appointment they took off the dressing and immediately admitted me into the hospital for 2 severe infections at the wound site. I was on about 6 days of IV antibiotics before they could do the surgery and in the hospital for 8 days. My wife and I had brought up the fact the wound had not been properly cleaned yet and it wasnt until my second day in the hospital that Infectious Disease came to look at it and thoroughly cleaned it. It postponed my surgery by several days, required 6 weeks of home health and a PICC line to be installed, and has cost me loads of money on downtime while in hospital. Is this an example of malpractice?
