You will want to make your complaints to the hospital in writing.
I suggest the Joint Commission:
it will get their attention
I just had my husband read your story and asked him what he would do. He went to law school and worked as a public defender for 3 years. He said:
1. He said he would ask to speak with the attending physician and have a very long discussion!
2. He would file a lawsuit for malpractice.
3. And more importantly, he would file criminal assault charges against the nurse.
kosheng, have you talked to your son about what happened? I know he is only 12 months old, but they understand a lot. He must be so traumatized by this. Have you told him that it was wrong what the nurse did to him, that you tried to protect him, that it will never happen again, etc.? He needs help working out his emotions. He might need to cry about it.
