Harm by Colonoscopy

Harm by Colonoscopy

Despite the doctors at the hospital knowing that my husband had chronic heart disease, 3rd stage kidney disease, peripheral artery disease, septicemia, type 2 diabetes they performed a colonoscopy on this 85 year old man. Despite documenting that if cancer was found, given his incurable serious medical problems, he would be unable to avail himself of a cure. In short he was subjected to a test that depleted his medical condition still further and likely shortened his life. Information is on the internet that a colonoscopy is contradictory to established medical standard to be performed on a patient of his age 85 years) but it wasn’t until I read in an article in the paper on November 2020 that I became aware of the true extent of the damage done to my husband was from the Colonoscopy done May 2nd2020. He was discharged from the hospital May The 8th and died at home on May 20th of a cardiac arrest.
Regarding him signing his consent to have a colonoscopy I doubt he was told that it would result in harming his health and due to his heart condition put him in danger of dying sooner rather than later. I doubt that he was told of non invasive tests such as Colon Guard that wouldn’t have a harmful effect on his medical condition,
Indeed the thought occurs why would a patient agree to a procedure that can harm but not help ?
I have contacted more than 50 lawyers but time limits, the cap of $250,000.00 for mental distress, costs and efforts involved in a medical malpractice lawsuit are undoubtedly the reasons none of the layers contacted agreed to file a lawsuit.
I’m unsure which government agency to complain to. I’m unsure if it would be a wasted effort to contact the CEO of the hospital.
This is a heads up that when facing a situation such as this to pause and say “Hold the Horses.”
