Legal Question

Asked on: 12/11/10, 6:49 pm

My mom went into the ER with stroke symptoms, when she was admitted she was able to walk, talk and eat. ER doctors knew her medical conditions diabetes, hypertension and high-blood pressure. They also knew she had stopped taking her high blood pressure medicine. They did a CT and found only an old stroke from a few years back but nothing new. As the day progressed her conditioned worsened, but the doctors made it seem to my parents as it was no big deal (note both of my parents don't speak english well), so neither my brother or I was ever contacted. By the next morning she was not able to talk, walk or eat and it wasn't until that morning that they had the MRI done. And it was until mid-morning towards afternoon that the hospital was able to confirm that she had a stroke and was then administering stroke medicine. Can I sue the hospital for delay in treatment?
