The whole idea behind ThisMakesMeSick is exposing the outrageous problems of America's medical liability nightmare.
We've been evenhanded over the past year going after the dirtbags causing the mess, no matter if they are lawyers, doctors, patients, politicos, or insurance companies.
Recently, we heard a truly sick tale from Blaine Stanziana about his wife's horriffic hospital stay:
My wife went into Pittsburgh's Mercy hospital on 10-3-05 for a hysterectomy. The morning of the surgery we told hospital doctors that my wife still had a sore throat. They ignored us. My wife then placed this information in the preoperative anesthetic evaluation form where question 6 asked " Have you had any of these symptoms in the past week? A Sore Throat? A cough or cold? My wife then checked the yes box's for both answers.
My wife developed the Flesh Eating Disease called Necrotizing Fasciitious in her surgery incision six hours after surgery. My wife then underwent five emergency surgeries in three days to save her life. She was on a breathing machine fighting for her life. In all she had seven surgeries in eight days all because the hospital did not listen to us about her having a sore throat the morning of the surgery.
Here is a photo taken by Blaine of his wife after the incident.
