While the following story did not occur here in New Jersey, it does display some unfortunate decisions by a hospital and the inadequate response the hospital and medical professionals had towards a patient with a serious issue.
The story involves a woman and her husband, who went to the hospital after the woman complained of an inability to urinate. She had atrial fibrillation due to a prior condition and used blood thinners. As a result, the proper action for the hospital would have been to check on her coagulation times, but medical professionals never did. In fact, according to the story, the medical professionals on hand did very little at all -- except release the woman without properly treating or dealing with her clear medical issue.
