Your story is tragic, and you have my condolences.
Now may not feel like the best time, but you certainly do have a case, and I STRONGLY suggest that you get in touch with a local attorney to discuss how to proceed next. If the debt you referenced is hospital debt, it should self-evidently be cleared—YOU should not be paying for THEIR error. You may be entitled to more. As you continue to grieve, please find a lawyer to help your future selves deal with the financial repercussions of what has happened.

From what you posted, it appears that you would likely have a medical malpractice claim against the physician and potentially other individuals or entities, as well.
Our office routinely handles complex medical malpractice cases in Pennsylvania, including York County, and I would be more than willing to speak with you on the telephone in more detail about your situation. Please feel free to contact me directly at 610-565-3700 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
