  1. Even though it wont bring his brother back, i am glad to hear that the hospital accepted responsibilty. You don’t hear that very often. My father died very tragically in a hospital in NH. he died less than 20 hours after neck surgery. He was found unresponsive, front part of the neck brace was off. Our fathers neck swelled after surgery and he could not breathe. His neck was severely bruised. in addition, he was not hooked up to a heart took them 20 min to get a pulse. I ended up losing my father. I have already sent the hospital my letter of intent ti file suit. now, to obtain a lawyer.
