I went to the ER with a (collapsed lung). This is the 2nd time I have had this, and am well aware of how serious it is. The ER doc.put the chest tube in. While talking with my husband, the chest tube fell out. I told my husband to get someone quickly, as I covered the wound. He immediately called for help. The original nurse came in and placed his hand over it as well. During a follow up, it was mentioned that an ER nurse said she came in and saw the tube on the floor. She also stated that she asked why I didn't call for help, and that I responded that I did not want to bother the staff. This is all blatantly false. The second chest tube tore through breast tissue. There was also the tip of a glove left in the wound. I am considering an attorney. Any advice?
