4 Weeks on May 3 that I broke my foot

And I have had the boot for 2 weeks. I think they’re holding me hostage. They want me to do all these things before letting me leave but I couldn’t do them before. A nurse told me that the doctor has to release me and rehab has to release me and the social worker has to release me and said don’t tell anyone but then they check to see how long your insurance will cover you to make their final decision on when to discharge. I don’t even have a tentative date yet. I was told that it would probably take 1-2 weeks after they decide I am ready. That sounds like something this sleazy hospital would do. I still need to figure out how to report them once I am out of here. They say you can report these instances with out retaliation but I am not stupid enough to believe that one.

  1. If you would like to report them, find out who is over their organization. I warn you that it probably won’t do a lot of good, because frankly (my opinion) they cover each other’s backs at the patient’s cost. Start with the in-hospital patient/public relations people. Air your complaints, document them yourself (write them down). If necessary see about a lawyer (you can find those who don’t charge for the initial consultation). Bad patient care is a pandemic all its own in my opinion. I hope you find some satisfaction, even if it is only getting to tell your story your way.
