Q: Medical malpractice: While in the Care of Tioga Community Care ( terrible reputation ) rehab for a fall in my driveway!
While in the Care of Tioga Community Care ( terrible reputation ) rehab for a fall in my driveway resulting in a concussion and a stay in Rapides Hospital after which I was sent to Tioga where I vaguely recall, arguing with nurse Shannon. It seems I fell in my room ending with an Ambulance ride to Rapids Hospital which sent me to a Trauma #1 unit in Shreveport where brain surgery was successfully performed into ICU unit (Marvelous surgery and ICU recovery). They saved my life. They returned me to Tioga where I found my cash and money clip stolen (minor issue). Tioga and LPN Nurse Shannon should be defendents. So far my medical costs are well over $150,000!
A: Nursing home negligence falls within the Medical Malpractice Act in Louisiana. You should contact an attorney directly who handles medical malpractice matters. Good luck.
