Hi. I need help finding a lawyer who can help me sue [an organization]. My ex-wife, in an attempt to cover her wrongdoing, said a very slanderous thing about me to a phone nurse who takes calls (namely, she claimed that I had been convicted of a very hienous crime when, in fact, my criminal record is clean. Then, in the visit following the phone call my ex made, it was determined, by my ex's own admission, that something bad was going on in her house which explained why she said what she did about me, so that it would take attention away from what was going on in her house), and then [the] staff made the decision to write the comment in my son's medical records (without any investigation to see if it was true) which my ex-wife and [the organization] has now shared with other agencies in the area, to include my son's school, etc. Then [the organization] tried to hide the comment from me by blacking it out when I requested a copy of my son's medical records. I only found out because I noticed that when I went to receive care that I was being treated differently (like I was a monster), and finally I asked a nurse if I had done something wrong to make everyone mad at me, and she told me to look in my son's medical records on a certain date (the date in my son's records that contained the false remark about me), and so I went to medical records and, with the help of a friend who now works there, I found out what my ex had said about me which was causing everyone to treat me badly. After that I went with a copy of my clean criminal record and requested an immediate amendment to my son's records. Since then all [the organization] has done (over the last month and a half) is tell me that they "need more time" to investigate the situation. I believe that I have a strong case against (based on the book "Legal Aspects of Health Care Administration" which, ironically enough, [the organization] keeps in it's training library for it's staff to use), but I need a good attorney who can show them that they cannot ruin people's lives by putting comments about one person in another person's medical records that are slanderous and extremely damaging (comments that have nothing to do with the care of the patient and are about another person entirely) and then, not only hide the comments from the person who is being slandered, but share the comments via the medical records with important people and important agencies in the community where the slandered person lives. This might even be a class action matter because the nurse who finally helped me told me that it goes on all the time, and that [the organization] even has a "code" that they use on people's records that tells staff if they are criminals, etc., it does not matter if the comments are true or just rumors, and that these comments are written in something called a "staff journal log", so I am sure that there are other people who are out there who have had this very same thing happen to them, most of whom probably have no idea what is being said about them. One final note, the crime that my ex said that I was convicted of is the type of crime that would never be expunged from a criminal record, and would even label the person who was convicted of it publically for life, so that is not the situation here, as I can clearly prove that I have never been convicted of any crime. In addition, it is the type of crime that everyone has the same reaction to, and it is a very bad reaction directed towards the person who was convicted of the crime, so it has damaged me, and is still damaging me, very severely. Thank you for your time.
