52 year old female, c/0 left sided weakness last known well time yesterday at 1600. Brought into ER by family today because she became unresponsive. Family reported that yesterday her left side went limp. So why did family not bring her in earlier, like on first onset????? Well family was in town to celebrate thanksgiving on wednesday. Since everyone went home this morning, thought waiting a bit would be best. Long story short. woman is dead, who could have had TPA because family did not want to ruin their holiday. Now, family is threatening to sue us because we did not give TPA when she first presented to us....... this afternoon


  1. You mean you don't have superman powers to see into other peoples lives to interceed when they can't overcome their own stupidity?

    Can't even begin to understand what goes on in peoples heads sometimes!
