Dr. prescribed me high doses of prednisone.

1 Answers. Asked on Mar 08th, 2017 on Medical Malpractice - Florida
More details to this question:
I was admitted for pneumonia at hospital for 3 1/2 days. During that time one of the medications was prescribed was 80 mg prednisone and would continue for five days following release per doctors prescription. Following release from the hospital I had to return to ER three times and collapsed once at another doctors office within a week while experiencing dangerously high blood glucose levels. I am type 2 diabetic and hospital was aware that I was a diabetic and the doctors never counseled about issues of elevated gluclose levels or given anything medication to counteract gluclose levels.

There are no meaningful damages here. Its not likely a viable med mal case simply for that reason alone.
