Hi thank you for your enquiry and your patience, I am very sorry to hear of your situation. For a legal claim the threshold is very high for proving your injury and that the pain suffered was as a direct result of what you have explained as what you believe caused the further issues. I appreciate the individual nurse appears to have not taken a liking to you however establishing causation is central to whether you actually have a claim and I think your focus should be on the premature discharge if that is what the professionals that saw you since being discharged. You stand a better chance of pursuing the private clinic for damages if you can show that you should not have been discharged when you were. A claim against the individual nurse frankly will not bring about a result that will make you feel any better, the most they would probably do is to excuse the nurse's behaviour and apologise. I would not want you to get more frustrated with the responses you might get. I think if there was mention of issues with being discharged when you were by the doctors/surgeons that saw you after then that is the basis of any claim and you would want to speak to clinical/medical negligence solicitors for example Erwin Mitchell to assess your claim and hopefully represent you. I hope this helps and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience. All the best
Hi there is only a claim where you can also prove damage. So if as a result of not checking your bloods there was an adverse implication on your health and you needed to be attended to and to receive treatment then you could look to claim. If nothing happened as a result of what they may not have done I would not want to lie to you, you would not be able to pursue a claim for compensation
Hi on JA I would not be able to review a whole file unfortunately. The view of a medical professional is what you need to make your decision. So if the surgeon that did the repair can say "but for the actions of the nurses/clinic in discharging you early you would not have suffered a,b,c and now that you suffered a,b,c you have had to have this extra work done and you will suffer ,d,e,f" then it is worth taking your file to a clinical/medical negligence solicitor for them to assess. Most will give you the first 30 minutes free.
