This is the reason for me creating this blog:
Jocelyn Y. Dickson a small framed 22 year old CHARGE Syndrome little girl was taken to the Emergency Room of Memorial Hermann Hospital for a piece of corn dog lodged in her throat. On that fateful day of February 14, 2011, the supposedly most loved day of the year, she becomes the victim of medical negligence.
Two doctors, who were found to be friends as well as colleagues decided to commit a crime-cover-up of the death of my daughter Jocelyn. HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD
The core value of the medical profession is centered on the duty to help sick people and to avoid harm, but on that day, one of medicines most cherished commandments, First do no harm was not honored.
Imagine, Jocelyn lying there while the first doctor forces the GI tubing down her throat. The thrust of the tubing perforates her esophagus but he continues to force the instrument further inducing too much CO2 in her abdomen causing abdominal compartment syndrome. Her abdomen continues to swell until her colon erupts releasing toxins in her body. Limp and helpless she goes into cardiac arrest, but he proceeds with placing her on a ventilator. This is part of the horrific experience I had to watch and endure. No one including the nurses said a thing. They witnessed this “serious” medical error and did nothing. HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD
Though that wasn’t enough the second doctor operates on what we found to be true later a totally brain dead patient, also leaving six blood soaked sponges in splenic region of her abdomen. No one including the nurses said a thing. HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD
Compounding the problem, they roll her little body into ICU as if she was alive, hook her up to IV’s and continued to give her blood transfusions. During the second surgery her blood coagulated and she began to bleed out. Blood streamed down her face from her eyes, ears and nose. Every opening and every wound seeped blood until every drop of blood ran onto the floor. Seven (7) hours my family and I watched my daughter die. No one including the nurses said a thing. HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD.
Edmund Burke made a profound statement that “No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little. Just one whisper would have done. Just one word would have sufficed, but instead they said HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD.
In a survey of 1,600 physicians by Columbia University’s Institute of Medicine as a profession revealed that 46 percent of the doctors in the survey had witnessed “serious” medical errors by their colleagues without reporting them. (DC Medical Malpractice Law Blog). This was even true though 93 percent said they realized they should turn doctors in. HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD
Our governor Rick Perry, legislators and the Texas Medical Board has failed us and has not protected us from this repulsive demon “medical negligence”.
How does one ignore and deliberately conceal this most hideous crime and get away with it? The answer is the “TORT” Reform, Proposition 12, and House Bill 4. This horrid “demon” has become an undercover agent that is out to destroy. It protects doctors, hospitals and other medical personnel, a matter of fact it is the only entity that allows someone to injure or even cause death and suffer no consequences. Even if doctors are sanctioned, they usually keep practicing. Both doctors who caused my daughters’ death are still allowed to practice medicine. HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD
Socrates felt that it was necessary to create tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half-truths, so it is now necessary that I create tension in society that will call the American people to action and to raise their voices in protest for change. I will never be able to recover Jocelyn hugging me, never recover her sitting on my lap, never recover her combing my hair, never recover her saying Hi Momma, I’m Momma’s baby. Jocelyn’s last words to me as she kneeled on the side of the bed was Momma Help Me Please and the ringing of those words will forever haunt my soul, for my family and I trusted the doctors, doctors who Americans have trusted for centuries.
This sick sordid game on life “medical negligence” has taken innocent lives and the world has turned their heads and just simply said HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD.
No more HUSH DON’T SAY A WORD, Jocelyn had the right to breathe.
Texas has found a way to legalize Murder.
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”
