You may have a medical malpractice case. A big issue as to when this occurred. An experienced attorney needs to evaluate your case as if it is within the time limit to sue. Even if you have no case, it can be reported to the board that licenses her.

You absolutely may be trespassed from the hospital. If you have care concerns, those perhaps should be addressed as Mr. Selik suggests, or you may need to get other doctors involved to facilitate movement to a different facility.

Hard to say with what you present. Attorneys are not doctors or mental health professionals; I can only assume your husband presented "normally", and even stating all his mental health issues would not alone require an attorney to decline representation.
At this juncture, you... Read more »

A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. One option is to see if your health insurance carrier has the records. It's no guarantee, but insurance carriers might have medical records submitted in connection with bills to verify the treatments. Good luck

Possibly. Sounds like the makings of a lawsuit for which you should seek an employee-side civil litigator.
Dr. Kavanagh immediately suggested "pulling the plug" and after two visits to Borges we got her to Bronson where A bowel blockage was surgically removed, my Mom was sent home after only 24 hours and is recovering.

A number of reasons, all of which depend on facts you are not disclosing in your question. Could be as simple as they are acting on instructions from the proper patient advocate - perhaps your mom's spouse or one of your siblings. Maybe there is an adult protective services investigation or... Read more »

A Michigan attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It's difficult to say, without more information. It could be a communication mix-up, automated scheduling error, or other reasons. More information would be needed to make a more meaningful guess. Good luck
They beat his head off the wall and gave him a concussion. He was hospitalized for 2 days then sent back and now they won’t speak to me. He signed a paper for me to be his guardian and they just hang up on me when I callb

If your son is an adult, you will need to petition for guardianship from the probate court. The paper your son signed does not cut it. Until then, you have no legal authority to act on his behalf.

It might depend on the circumstances involving the death that required a particularly level of autopsy, and whether or not the CME authorized release.

I don't see why not if a doctor determines it necessary. The alternative is to go to a different hospital.
Can employer terminate now that I have almost worked 60 days since resignation without having to pay my wages for 60 days since they are severing contract before my last day of work provided in resignation?

This depends on the language in your contract. You should contact an employment lawyer in your area to review the contract.

When a lawyer is in good standing, they deserve to be presumed to be zealous advocates for their client.

Are there other assets Medicaid can take from our estate?

Depends on who you mean by "we" and who would be the qualifying person for Medicaid. Ordinarily, the value of the primary residence is exempt for qualification purposes; you can "keep" it while the person is alive. However, once a person dies, the state may seek to recover what... Read more »

You will likely need to seek out an attorney who has experience in health care law. I would inquire about whether or not a sonographer can operate independently, the type of license a diagnostic facility requires, and whether or not a diagnostic facility needs a physician in a director role. And, I... Read more »
