Report Medical Abuse
There are many women who find themselves in an emergency rooms because of mesh complications. In fact most women do either before or after surgery. Over the years of doing this I have heard awful things that happened to them and at first I was shocked. However I hate to say this that shock then turns into normal for me to read. That is not a good thing for women.
There is an organization called JCAHO who can do something about your complaint and they take it seriously. If you are a patient or a family member please read this and start learning. Don’t let your loved one die because of mesh complications.
I know many of you live in fear. You are afraid of complaining or making any report when something like this happens to you, but please stop living in fear. Every time you let it go, it will happen to another woman. This is what this organization does.
Patient safety is its mission. This organization can levy heavy fines or close the doors of those not in compliance with patient safety standards.
Also understand that JCHHO is ONLY for hospitals and outpatient surgery centers and is nationwide. Not for individual doctors.
There are also agencies in many States. One is known as AHCA, Agency for Healthcare Administration. This one is in the State of Florida please be aware that any incident needs to be reported within one year of when it happened.
You may wonder why you have been treated the way you were and there could be another reason behind it. We think doctors are all good people who don’t do any substances and yet some do. So think differently and you may have the answer. Read this
I hope that is not the case, but no matter what women should be aware that they have rights and should NOT be treated badly by any ER doctor or other staff. It is time to stand up and say NO! These hospitals should raise their standards and vet doctors who care for emergency patients.
To report a specific doctor, one should report to the Department of Professional Regulation of the State you live in
or where this doctor has his/her license in. Some practice in more than one State and have admitting privileges in several hospitals. For all complaints, serious complaints, specify preferably dated incidences are needed. None of this should be about how a doctor’s office should be run or how appointments are scheduled. This is not a blog to condone frivolous complaints.
