Legal Question in Medical Malpractice in Florida

So my question is, my aunt has been diagnosed 3 different times saying she has bone cancer, she has been sick for months with low blood pressure,swollen lymph nodes, well she ended up in hostipal ended up finding out she has a major body infection to the point it's in her blood and her white blood count is extremely low. Se had a stent put into her gullbladder and they find out that is whats causing the infection, well they relsesed her from the hospital today another she called the surgon that did her stent, and told her to go right back t hospital and said it was bad medical malpractice I just wanted to know If there is a legal standing on this, my opinion she shouldn't have been relsesed because she could barely walk

Your aunt needs to get the best care she can right now and think about medical negligence later. See for a discussion of medical malpractice. Good luck.

If releasing her causes her to have any permanent problems, then she may have a claim. For now, it seems she has plenty of problems and just needs them taken care of. I would not go back to the same hospital. I would go to one where the surgeon is on staff so he can see her since he seems to have a handle on what is going on.
