I suffered a head injury while working in overseas as a contractor. Immediately after my injury I suffered vision impairment. I saw my assigned medical officer and she stated that I was suffering from eye strain and that I go and purchase eye drops. In the meantime as days went on, my vision continue to worsen to a point were I couldn't see out of my right eye. I experience symptoms such as blurry and double vision and ptosis. It was clear that I need to go to the hospital. Unfortunately, the medical officer refuse to take my injury seriously until my supervisor intervene and got me onboard a helicopter to fly to the nearest hospital and eventually back to the united states. If it wasn't for him, I would probably still be stuck overseas. I feel a sense of negligence towards my care.In regards to medical care, I being covered under the Defense Base Act (DBA). My main concerns is the level of treatment I received from the medical officer. Not to mention before I flew back to the US, my medical officer lost my medical records. I don't like to assume, but she took a great deal of heat for the lack of care and action. Colleagues are recommending I sue her for the lack of treatment I received and the worsening of my injury. Again I suffered a head injury that i experience vision problems that consistently became worst throughout time. It took over 5 days after the injury to receive any real medical care. This is also not the first time a complaint has been filed towards medical officer hired by my employer.
