The nurse from nursing home called my mom this morning at 2:30 am and said that they found my brother unresponsive and that he had removed his trek ( which is the thing to give him oxygen) and asked what hospital she wanted him to go to. The nurse did not mention that she did CPR and should have just sent him to hospital closes by which was a mile away and call my mom afterwards. My brother could breathe for 4 hours without his trek they were weaning him off of it. My brother was doing so good. He pulled on things, and the staff knew of it. He had to be unseen by nursing home staff for 5-6 hours and the nurse was suppose. My question is can I sue? and what actions can I take to get process started. Should I wait until autopsy reveal time of death to pursue legal action?
