  • Fractured spine at worst hospital in NJ

    I signed an Against Medical Advice waiver while loaded on sedatives shortly after having a seizure at the hospital. I was clearly not coherant. They let me go outside and smoke a cigarette where I had another seizure that caused a compression fracture in my spine. I realize that I signed a waiver, but why is an intoxicated incoherant person allowed to do that? After several attempts to obtain my records and xrays I was never able to get them. They tried to tell me the fracture was old, but I would definitely have known it if I had ever fractured my own backbone, which had never given me a problem before and was suddenly causing excrutiating pain.
