AHCA uncovers violations at a Florida hospital

The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) recently discovered that a local hospital in Florida committed several violations after a mother who lost her son filed a complaint, an August 12 article of 10 News reported.

According to reports, the AHCA confirmed that a hospital committed health violations after an unannounced visit to Florida Hospital North Pinellas. Agents at the AHCA learned that the nursing staff in the facility committed most of the violations that endangered their patients. The hospital was investigated after Jeanette Gonzalez filed a complaint against them. Gonzalez’s son, Javier Roldan, died at the hospital after going in for the treatment of his broken leg. Gonzalez, however, is unable to pursue damage claims against the hospital because of a Florida law. The state’s Wrongful Death Act prevents family members from filing a medical malpractice suit resulting in the death of their loved one if the person is 25 or older and unmarried. Gonzalez claimed that hospital staff neglected her while her 33-year-old son was struggling with his injuries.
