You were not the physician treating your loved one. You were not making a diagnosis at Norton Hospital, you were not in the operating room at University Hospital, and you were not deciding on a prescription at Jewish Hospital. You know that there were risks for your loved one, but did she have to die? Did she die as the result of her medical condition or as the result of medical malpractice?
You Have the Right to Know
In many cases, a doctor, nurse, or hospital administrator is not going to tell you that your loved one died because of medical malpractice or negligence. Instead, they are going to hope that you and your family don’t ask a lot of questions and instead focus on grieving for your loved one.
You have the right to grieve and to ask questions. You have the right to know what happened. It may require you to ask the right questions, to request the right documents, and to understand what a reasonable doctor, nurse or hospital would’ve done in similar circumstances. This can be difficult to figure out, but you also have the right to get help.
