Medical Malpractice at Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center (EVRMC) Leyte Philippines rReader Rating: 6.0
Sometime of June 4,2008, I was admitted at Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center (EVRMC) Leyte, Philippines due to labor pains (pregnancy) and eventually delivered a twin baby girls in normal delivery. I had no bleeding,no rise in blood pressure and no bad manifestation.
After 2 days I was scheduled for Bilateral Tubal Ligation (BTL) I go forth with the procedure thinking that it was safe. at the ligation room I was asked by my attending physician if I have cough, I said yes. however they did not tried to listen to my chest w/ the use of stethescope and proceeded w/ the procedure, while the procedure was going on, I was complaining to them that i was in pain, I told them "doc I think the anesthesia is not taking effect yet because I can still feel the pain" but they just told me it is already working, but then again the pain is still there so i kept on complaining to them that i'm really in pain.
Then they told me that they will inject anoter anesthesia that will make me only drowsy but not put me to sleep. i did not know what happened next.i just woke up and heared them say ligation is finished.shortly thereafter i already had difficulty of breathing. i complain to them but they just told me that its just because of the anesthesia, (DEMEROL) they did not do anything abuot it.i was really in need of air because i could no longer breath and i already shouted "let me out of this room i will die here".
then eventually everything was dark and after that i did not know what happened next.It took about 3 days for me to regain full conciousness only then when i came to realized that I was already confined at the ICU w/ assisted breathing attached to the ventalator,sad to say that I am a victim of medical malpractice and negligence by my attending physicians at EVRMC.
