My mother made the 911 call for an ambulance per the request of my baby sister due to, "Acute Respiratory Distress/Failure.. She was unable to speak due to her breathing and my mother and I requested that she be taken to Lee Memorial. My mother argued and they took her to Lehigh Regional Medical Center instead!! They had our home telephone number and other cell phone contact numbers in case of any emergencies.. I know in these kind of cases, that it is crucial to get started a.s.a.p., due to statutory 2 year maximum time allotted to investigate..
Bare in mind that she was in this same hospital just a month or so ,before this time for the same exact illness, disease, etc...... What ever you want to call it. From the records, it seems to the best of my understanding. They're at fault 100%!!I have all of her medical records & I am the next of kin. I am representing my mother Cherylyn by a signed Power of Attorney with Durable Provisions.. Thought it would be necessary.. She went into cardiac arrest on Sunday, July 7th, 2012. They Claimed to have done manual cpr for 20-25 minutes to revive her. The reason why she went into cardiac arrest was because, Dr. Bravo, while inserting the central line. He collapsed her right lung, which had a M.R.S.A. infection in it which, they claim no previous knowledge of it but, they had her sent twice for x-rays of her same right lung before any of these procedures were done without permission and were unnecessary!!
