My son was in two Advocate Hospital and trust me I have proof that black do not get the same care in Advocate Hospital.
I had to accused Christ Hospital they were discriminating against my son, because they wanted me to take my son to a Nurhsing Home. They claim the 7th Floor West were not for patients to wean more than 3-days. I mointer that floor for seven days, I went and told the Administrator that I had notice a patient were on the seventh for seven days and they were still there, they told me this patient were critcal, I ask her what did she think my son was he also were critcal and had phenmonia, they transferred my son from Intensive care to the sevneth floor for several days and then told me he was weaned but he was still not stable enough to go home. They gave me a list of nurshing to choose from. I found a nurhsing home for my son, however Christ Hospital discharged my son to this nurshing home with phenmonia, and with out medcine, they discharged my son on a Friday evening, the staff at this nurshing home told me they called my son prescription in but, it would probably be Monday before the prescription could be filled. My son arrived at this Nurshing Home around 3:00 Pm Friday eveing, I stayed with my son because he was having a hard time breathing. My son was on a trait, which Crist Hospital put in some time in February I can't remember the exact Date. Back to the Nurshing Home after my son had not received his medication that he was supposed to take I went and talked the head nurse and explained the medication my son was on had to be taken in a time frame. she asked the nurse if she had ordered the medcine from the pharmacy the nurse said yes but it will probably be Monday before the medcines arrive She asked the nurse what medice my son was on the nurse gave her a list it turn out the nurshing home did have some of the medcine on hand, but the main medcine a Tykosin my son heart which was not available to all Hospital or pharmacy, I told the nurse my son had some of the medcine that Christ had prescribed for him at home it is now 12:00 am. My son medcine was suposed to have been given to him at 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm. The nurse asked me to please go home and bring all the medcine I had at home so she could see what medcine I had and the hospital had would be on hand until the prescription was filled. After my son breathing had got worse, the nurshing home call the doctor in to to check my son the doctor arrived around 1:00 PM he imediately told them to call an abulance and have my son taken to a hospital because he had phenomonia, he stayed st this Hospital for 1 month and and Half St James dischsrged my son to go home because my home was set up with equipment to take care of him at home. but the suction machine broke, The fire department had to take my son to South Suburban Advocate Hospital to wait there until the company brought out a suction machine. in the mean while this Doctor came in and Introduce himself to my son and me and ask if we had a family doctor. will give name of doctor in this breif but (will gladly give it in person or to an attorney.) My son said not at this hospital but, I have family doctors that work out of Christ Hospital. This doctor ask my son if he would consider staying over night so he could run some test on him my son agreed., tht when it started, I asked the doctor if I could call my husband doctor to work with him he said no he had his own team. South Suburban Hospital was a night mare, I discoverd they was giving my son medcine through an IV that had another patient name on the bag I went and told the nurse the bag had some one else name on the medcine they were injecting into my son she ran into the room and snatch the label of and said thank goodness this his medcine, I put the wrong label on your son medcine bag, after this my son body began to swell and he could not pass water he blew up so bad that he started bursting open and his skin starting turning blood red and black. (I have proof with pictures to show how badly condition my son body was in.)This doctor who had asked to treat my son and had trested him for over a month called me on a friday morning and told me my son needed to be in an University Hospital because his condition was beyond the scope of South Suburban Hospital. South suburban Nurses objected to me asking what medicines they were giving my son one nurse went and reported that I was questions her ability as nurse, because I asked her every time she went to give my son medcines I wanted to know what kind of medcines she was giving my son, This head nurse told me if I did not stop questing the nurses about what medcines they were giving my son she would have security to bar me from the Hospital, I told her she I would not asking question and the only way she could stop me from seeing my sonwas to have me lock -up because thet is my son life I am conceren about. All they wanted was the balanc of his Medicare, They did not bother to trasfer my son until his medicare benifit was used up.
UIC got my son stable enough to to go to a reahabilation hospital. This Hospita was Sroger Cook County Hospital in Oak Forest. Which turn out they let my son die. while he was on a mointer. I was called by a Doctor James, he told me my son had a heart attack and he expired at 23:15 Pm. I imediately wnt to the hospital I live 6-minutes away, when I arrived at the hospital I went straight to my son room to find him either dead or unconsciues, he was sweating a lots, sweat was running down his face his body was wet they had wraped my son in a plastic bag that had water inside of it. All the equipment was moved out, my son personal belonging was pack up, they had a wad of gause stuck inside of the hole in my son's neck I took the gause of to see if he was bleeding or if a lots of secretion was seeping, nothing, my son neck hole was dry and he was still warm I aske the doctor to please give my son ogxen he said mam you son is dead. He walk out of the room I ask the nurse to please call the doctor I wanted to ask what had happen to my son. He answere the phone and said tis is Dr James How may I help you, I aske him waht happen he said I don't know I was working in ICU and I received a code blue call, the nurse that started at 11:00 pm. said you son was not responding when she went into the room, and she did not get no vital reading. I have had had three reason my son died a CNA who I will not name her name at this time she told me "mam" (1) you can rest your son died peaceful in his sleep. (2)Dr. James told me My son died of an heart attack (3)on his death this doctor James cited my son died from Advanced COPD
After I finally got them to let me see my son Records it was cited he had a resportory failure November 22,2004, No one mention this to my husband or me when we visit my son that evening that my son had had a resportory failture.
November 22, was reported to the State Of Illinois because when I went to the Security Office to turn in my son' SSI Check and told the clerk I was returning my son's check becaus he die November 23, @ 23:15 PM she aske me for his ss# I gave her the check she put his SS# in the computer and she said according to our records your son died November 22, 2004. I said no My son died November 23, 2004 because I visit with my son Tuesday eveing unti 8:45 pm the doctor called me @ 12:03 Am and told me my son expirred @ 11:23 Pm which was NOvember 23, 2004. She called the Undertaker to confirmed the date my son died,The Undertacker fax a copy of my son's Death Certificate they had to the Society Security Office their fax confirmed my son died November 23, 2004 . When I received a copy of my son's death certificatee I discovered the two had been written over and changed to a three. Also part of the death certificate was typed and part was in long hand.
They gave me a copies of the last minutes my son was alive the machine mointer showed my son's irregular heart beat start at 11:22 and the straight line was @ 22:24 Pm. My questions why my son name is not on the print-out? and what happen to the full report sheet? why was just a part of two pieces of a print out one with irregular lines and one with the straight lines? and why we were not told my son han a resportory Failture monday around 1:00 pm November 22, 2004? my Husband and me visit my son the same day my husband he arrived at the Hospital around 1:30 Pm I went to the Hospital @ 5:00 pm nothing was said it was also cited that my son was not able to be transferred, nothing was discussed with us about transferring my son, Because I would have rather he died at home in peace rather than suffer. I have a witness who told me she had to plug my son call light cord in on four ocassion My son was the only patient in this room who was able to used the call button. Yes Advocate Hospitals do show Discrination in services. I observed when a white patient was admitted into my son rooms at South Suburban Avocate Hospitalhe this person had all new pads new sheets, he was there for about two hours before they transferred him out of the room with my son. If you are poor you die If you are rich you get the best of care. Yet Medicare and medicaid is billed with thousannd of dollars for patients that don't get the services thator medcinethey are suppose to, get. I need help to get answers about my son's death, because I truly belive my son died because of neglect, because I visited my son every day and observed while he was at Oak Forest they would not come into the room to suction him not only him but other patients would lay in fese for hours you had to cover your nose with a mask because the odor was just that bad. My son wrote every thing down that would happen when I was not around. I knew my son was very ill but all I asked is that he get the attention he needed, When You asked he nurses why it took so long for them to respond they would say we need more help if the patienst family would complain maybe they will give us the help we need, in the meanwhile my family member and your family member are dying because they are on medicare and medicaid. I also observed the staff leaving the Hospital staying for hours with no one to cover their patients or the desk where the mointor was station . when I would enter the J corridor the bell would be ringing and no one would be at the desk. On several occassion I arrived to find my son asperating for bresth and he would be trying to shake the rail to get help a nurse was walking in front of me she just look into the room and kept on walking. lord behold it was my poor son who needed the help I went to the front desk to find no one was there. I notice bruse mark on his whrist and hands I asked the doctor he said that the bruses came from him bein in restraints. My husban complained about my son taking his clothes and removing his oxgem from his trait because he was so heavely sedated while he had phenmonia, they had some one to come and sit one on one for a few days until he came down of the medication he was given. This same Dr. James had my son transferred back to regular room with a teperture 100.8 I question him about moving my son back to a regular room with such high tep[erture, i said they transferred him into ICU because his tempture was 99.8 now you want to transfer him out with a temperture of 100.8 he said you can only stay in intensive care for acertain amount of days and my son rooms was neede you know for who. I wrote down this doctor's name and my son temperture reading because I ask the nurse to please take my son's tempture before he was transferred back to his room she said it is 100.8 one of the Nurses came out of my son rooms crying she said he is so strong and is fighting so hard to live she said he took my hand and said nurse I want to live I don't want to die. who ever reads this information I desperately need help to find out why my son was found dead because he was on a mointer and if the nurse found him at 11:00 pm not responding how could the report show he was still had an irergular heart beat at 11:22 which is about Approximately 12-minutes after she entered the room.

I am trying to pass a "Nude Negro Law" down here in FL. This law would reguire all negroes to be nude when out in public. Studies have shown that this will dramatically cut down on the crime rate here.
