My mother was misdiagnosed and mistreated for an ischemic stroke at a small community hospital on 11/08/2012. She now has residual effects from the stroke, which may have been prevented if she were properly diagnosed and treated. The hospital failed to follow the national protocols that are in place for patients who present with stroke symptoms. She was diagnosed with an inner ear infection and they attempted to send her home. She was only transferred to another hospital after I arrived and demanded that she be sent to another facility (more than 12 hours after the onset of her symptoms.) We need someone who can file IMMEDIATELY.
