My 94yr grandmother was taken to the ER with Glu over 500, when the hospital admitted her they mistakenly filled Pred 100mg instead of Primdone. Over the week her Glu remained high the Dr's couldn't explain why, 5 days later she had a stroke, at this time they found the medication error. 1 week later she passed away, no one at the hospital will discuss what happened with me. I am her only immediate family, do I have any rights? After the stroke her doctor took a leave of absence. I have the hospitals medical records showing the mistake and the death certificate show probable cause of death to be Diabetes. It also states under other significant medical conditions medication error. My grandmother had a history of UTI, Renal Failure and Diabetes.
