My sister passed away in February from a heart attack in the hospital. She went in for kidny pain and was given heavy pain medications. She had a history of low oxygen intake when on pain meds but she was not put on any oxygen when she was admitted. The autopsy also revealed that she had a bad heart which we were not aware of, but she was not put on a heart monitor, which by the time the nurses checked on her in her room, the heart attack had already happened and and she was seizing from her brain dying. The stories of the nurses kept changing when we asked them what happened and no one has been able to explain why she wasn't on oxygen or a heart monitor.This occured in Denver, Colorado. Would I need to hire an attorney in Colorado or could I do this from Las Vegas? And she was not married nor did she have children. My Mother and I were her medical contacts.
