A federal agency recently discovered several violations at a local Florida hospital after a woman filed a complaint claiming negligence resulted in the death of her son, an article of 10 News reported on August 12.
In an unexpected inspection, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) in Florida found numerous violations committed by the Florida Hospital North Pinellas. The violations discovered by the AHCA primarily related to negligent nursing staff. Jeanette Gonzalez reported the negligence after her adult son, Javier Roldan, died while receiving treatment at the facility. Roldan, who was 33 years old at the time, died at the hospital after six days while being treated for a broken leg. Gonzalez, unfortunately, cannot file a lawsuit against the hospital due to a state law that prevents family members from filing a medical malpractice claim on behalf of unmarried loved ones 25 years and older. Jeanette told reporters that she will call this injustice to the attention of the state’s lawmakers hoping to change the law.
