My father had a small bowel obstruction surgery which was successful and was to be hospitalized for 7 days. 24 days later he died due to sepsis which should've been caught by the nurses being that his blood work showed abnormalities 3 days before his death. Their inattentiveness to his care throughout the 24 days caused his death.We asked for him to be placed in ICU after the 7th day when we saw no improvement because he was in chronic pain and continued to vomit everyday which we later found out were signs of major complications of this surgery. However, the responsible surgeon assured us he was perfectly fine and didn't need to be in ICU.The day of his death no physicians would sign his death certificate and the hospital paid for a private autopsy.We are seeking justice! Please advise.
