What a sad situation for you and your Family.
The details you provided are sketchy and I would want to know more about what occurred.
However there may be a case of negligent hiring of the Nurse by the Nursing Home.
You should pursue this matter with an attorney.
Suggest you contact an Attorney who specializes in Nursing Home Litigation.
There are specialists in your area that belong to the Nursing Home Litigation Section of the AAJ --American Association for Justice.
It is difficult to fully understand your question, however, I suggrest you may want to contact DADS (Texas State agency) that deals with these issues.
You may want to contact the Ombudsman (if there is one for this facility).
Also, you may want to file a complaint with the Texas Nursing Board (if she is an RN or an LVN)
I am very sorry for the los of your daughter.
Many jail facilities do not provide proper medical treatment for persons with mental illness problems and/or addictions. You have not indicated when this occurred.
The Statute of Limitations in Tennessee is one year, provided however, that may be extended if your daughter was under age.
If suit needs to be filed against a governmental agency (such as the County) there may also be a requirement of Notice to the County.
More facts are needed...
You should pursue this matter.
Sounds like serious complications have developed and you have undergone a great deal of pain and suffering.
You should obtain your medical records and have your case reviewed by an attorney familiar with medical, malpractice issues.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
You will need to obtain the medical records from the Hospital ER.
Also, medical records from other Doctors you have seen for diagnosis and treatment.
Most attorneys who handle medical malpractice cases do so on a contingency basis.
The records would have to be reviewed to determine if you have a viable case.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
