Asked in Medical Malpractice for South Carolina

Q: Nurse does not return calls, call in medication timely, nor completes referrals, then lies to you. What can be done?

I have a date list from Jan 2 of each time I have had interaction, what she said susue would do, and how long it actually took. I have a chronic illness and she is not an advocate for my health.

A: You could look into a different staffing organization. That's a personal decision you don't need a lawyer to make - the choice is yours. There could be any number of reasons for the problems you describe, but the bottom line is that you have to feel comfortable with the person caring for you and they need to look out for your best interests in terms of medical care.
