total letdown. not sure what i expected though, aside from a headache induced by lies, cover-up, and inaction. :

and the beat goes on....

I really hope you will press assault charges against the nurse. You might not be speaking to the hospital directly by doing that, but they will perhaps take action to better educate their employees as a result.

I read this thread yesterday - it brought me to tears, and I couldn't stop thinking about it last night

I'm sorry I have no words of wisdom or advice, I just had to say how sorry I am that this happened. It sounds nightmarish, and I hope you find the strength to keep pushing and make sure the hospital staff learn a lesson from this. I'm not sure how it works in the US, but would they be likely to press charges against you if you went to the media with your story?

Huge hugs mama - I'm happy to hear that at least your son has healed

I just saw this discussion for the first time today, I'm so sorry about what happened to your son! That does sould like a huge let down not getting any resolution in this matter. Can I ask if you are in the US? I'm a former medical malpractice attorney, feel free to pm me if you would like some pointing in the right direction with this matter. I'm more than happy to help in any way I can.
