    My daughter's mammogram came back suspicious, so dr did a biopsy. There was a titanium marker put in. Several weeks later, she started having excruciating pain, drainage, and swelling in that breast. Had a sonogram in ER (her dr thought it was allergic reaction to titanium). They found a large piece of plastic that had broken off during the biopsy.
    That was removed by a different surgeon 2 days later. She now, a week later, has more pain again. Another sonogram showed a pus pocket, and ?possibly more.
    Now drs and staff are treating her like a pariah. She's not being charged at this point, but won't know what else will be done in the future.
    Mormon hospital and drs, and she us not. Advice??

    Are you suggesting that she got substandard care because of her religion/lack thereof?

    That could certainly be malpractice. She should be talking to a medical malpractice attorney ASAP before records start to disappear.

    She should also be getting her medical treatment elsewhere.

    The thing is, if she recovers satisfactorily in the near future, her case isn't likely to be worth much money.

    No, not originally. What I'm suggesting is that NOW it's getting difficult for her to find a non-Mormon dr or lawyer who wants to handle her case or give her the benefit of the doubt.
    Even the surgeon who took the plastic piece out, tried to convince her it never happened. Luckily, she does have all her records. As well as a picture of the piece that was taken out.

    Not really sure what you're seeking. The subject header of your post tells me you're already aware of the relevant legal issue, and your daughter is obviously free to consult with a medmal attorney.
