I had a 2.5 inch laceration on the back of my left heel. I went to the hospital and received stiches. I was in the hospital for 3 days because I also fractured a bone, and have been out for 3. While I was there they were only concerned about the fracture, I had to ask them to look at the dressing on the wound. two of the stiches have ripped through the skin, (the wound opened up again) In the middle. It looks red and is EXTREMLEY painful. I am going back to get it looked at tomorrow. Can I sue? (They failed to even take a picture of it before they did the stiches because their camera was dead!!!)
