Orlando, FL asked in Medical Malpractice for Florida

Q: Can I sue a hospital ?

I had my son May 28,2019 and it was hell of a day. I was schedule for my c-section at 7:30 am and when I went in I did everything they asked me to get ready for surgery. They lost my drug test they didn't have records on me ( But they called me the day before to confirm) So I could not have the baby they put me and my husband in a room. Finally 1:00 pm comes around I didn't eat all day because I wasn't allowed to my husband left to go to my doctor office to get my records. He brought them back and then to find out the delivering doctor left. So I didn't not have my son till 10;30 pm that night the new nurse notice I didnt have my drug test so she decided to get my pee out of my cath and of course after c-section I will pop up for drugs so DCF comes in my room basically saying I`m a druggie then they notice the error. Now almost a year later I find out my son never had his newborn test done after the stated he did. What can I do?

A: Next time, find a different hospital.

It doesn't appear that you have been damaged monetarily by the hospital's mistakes.
