Portland, OR asked in Wrongful Death for Oregon

Q: Contiued my mom died 5 days ago

Cont- n so she had to go in for the 5th nsurgery this time she stayed over night but was related to released the following day not even a day later she received a phone call from the surgeons nurse saying there the infection was resistant to the antibiotics and he was prescribing her something stronger. She went and got that prescription came home and took just one and was found not breathing on her bedroom floor not even 10 minutes after taking the New antibiotic. I believe she had gotten blood poisoning from when the surgeon left the house in her elbow after the first surgery and the surgeon new this. He had made a comment to a family member that he had inherited my mom's problem and that she was a burden on him.
