My husband had very high blood pressure (over 220) and went to the doctor in 2011. The doctor sent him home with blood pressure medication that did not lower his blood pressure.
My husband went back a few times and the doctor continued to send him home with different medications that did not lower is BP.
He ultimately suffered a stroke and was hospitalized for 7 days until they were able to find the right combination of medication that would keep his blood pressure down. He had loss of speech and motor function on his left side. He has regained some speech, although it is difficult to understand him at times, and has regained much of his motor function, but does become imbalanced and stumbles at times.
I have since been advised by nurses to seek an attorney. They say that common practice is to hospitalize a patient with constant BP over 215 or 220.
My husband has loss of memory, energy, concentration, decision making skills, speech, and he cries very easily. He was sent back to work earlier this year, even though I let the doctor know that he seems confused, and can't remember things, and is very very lethargic. My husband has fallen asleep at work while on machinery. I am afraid he may lose his job. We have changed doctors and are working on getting him rediagnosed for his ability to work. I am not able to find an attorney to take his case. Please let me know if I should keep looking or let this go.
Any advice that you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
