    On 1/1/23 we were both tested positive for covid both at home and at St Davids ER in Bastrop Tx. We were only given a cough syrup because of our kidney issues. My wife progressively got worse and went back to St Davids ER in Bastrop and she was admitted to St. Davids in north Austin on Mopac. She was there for a week and then sent home with some pills where she showed signs of improvement. She continued to show improvement until sometime in mid April where she started getting sick again, Throwing up, diarrhea, no appetite dehydration. We went to the Seton ER this time in Smithville and she was admitted to Seton on 38th st. There she stayed for around 10 days where they ran a ton of test where they determined she had a bacterial infection of the stomach lining and they sent her home. At the time of discharge she was told her liver and kidneys were fine. She showed signs of improvement for the first few days, then started going down hill. She had been out of the hospital for around 10 days and was taken by ambulance back to Seton Smithville ER where she was immediately transported back to Seton on 38th st. While at the ER the attending physician said she was in starvation ketosis . Upon arrival and review she was told her liver and kidneys were gone and she needed dialyses but they waited for 48 hours before they started it and she slipped into a coma. In addition they kept her on a jello diet when her Dr. wanted her back on normal food. When I asked why they waited so long to start dialyses I was told because her blood pressure was too low, but I was also told that the only thing keeping her alive in the comatose state was 3 drugs to raise the blood pressure. A IC Dr. came into the room where my self, my sister and my brother in law and his wife an 2 of our Grand kids and 2 sisters in video conference. He explained that there is no hope of her returning and the best thing would be to stop the 3 drug cocktail and to let her expire. With every one in the room staring at me I suddenly realized they were waiting on me to make the decision. The cocktail was stopped and she died at 6:18 pm. on 05-03-23. I’ve relived this event every single day. We were married and in love for 43 years. Here’s a list of the drugs she was given.

    My mom has been urinating blood since September. She has been going to minor emergency and also to the main hospital. All facility’s are owned by the same medical Name. Every doctor she has seen just write a prescription for antibiotics. Since September not one Dr called in a specialist or referred her to one at all. Finally a Dr did do a scan and said she has a mass on her bladder. This was In the middle of December. She was even admitted for 8 days over Thanksgiving and no specialist was called in then either and still no scan to find mass. On 12/21/2022 she went back cause she felt weird and was light headed. I took her back out to the main hospital again and this time her blood pressure dropped really low. In this ER 2 doctors were talking about her past and both admitted BSA dropped the ball on this and They both could not believe that over all this time no one mentioned specialist or scan. They even came in asked her about DNR and put a port in her chest to help in case she dies. She was admitted to ICU on December 21st We have no information about mass on bladder but they have her now scheduled to remove on Dec 30th.They could have found out about the mass in September but failed to do the correct test or scan. It looks like all these Dr failed to read the history and how long she has been dealing with the bleeding. These clinic and their main hospital have failed over and over to not diagnose her properly.

    My wife has a back surgery where doctor removed a spur. Eight weeks later the disc gets unstable moves around so required another surgery. Third time doctor installed hardware and screwed it to stabilize. Now after MRI, one of the screws has broken and hardware is becoming unstable. Doctor and hospital admits to several patients have same issue, so now it’s a manufacturer issue. They want to do another surgery using a different brand of hardware. The hospital has advised FDA on this faulty hardware. She is still in bad pain and needs to be fixed and compusated.

    Hi, I was hospitalized at Memorial Herman City hospital in Houston on January 9th and discharged on 1/11/2021. I was getting an IV at the time in a group setting and a doctor was present. He didn’t look at my chart but asked if I wanted to be discharged that day or the next day saying it was my choice. I never saw this particular doctor during my stay. So heck, trusting in him as a doctor I opted to be discharged that day. Now my health insu is leary to pay that bill. I arrived home, and my husband bought one of those finger things that measure oxegen and heartrate. The readings were bad. He tried to buy oxegen but couldn’t. He called the hospital and they readmitted that day.
