intentionally screen out significant medical complaints)? Then they followed up with manipulating vital signs to down play significant medical issues and discharge the PT with significant physical damages/injuries?
For example, the PT went in with complaints of repeated episodes of low blood pressure and concern for potential cardiovascular system collapse. The resting blood pressure in the hospital room was also consistent with her home measurement and it was low. The nurse came in and she told her that they are discharging her, then started to talk to her condescending and this stressed out the PT and her blood pressure shot up by 20 systolic points. Then the nurse recorded this blood pressure as the discharge blood pressure.
Are these conducts all legal?They then alleged (by faking the medical record) that her blood pressure was not low at all. They are licensed medical professionals. They know your blood pressure can go up by 20-30 points in matter of seconds by stressing you or causing you physical pain. PPS. AVVO censorship does not allow me to post following in reply to Mr. McCormick. "Why do people think anything that occur within the medical facility is a malpractice (mistake)? People can kill you or assault you on the street and hire people to cover it up. Then they are all accomplices and guilty of crime. Why do you think when the crime scene shits to the medical facility, the same act of intentionally injuring or covering up is suddenly not criminal? Do you think the nurses and health care professionals are so holy that they do not do any wrong doings? (just like the cops and private lawyers don't do any wrong doings?)
