In Florida if a family member dies due to the fault of the hospital and if the patient has no minor children, a spouse or a spouse who has dementia or any disease that prohibits them from testifying or telling the courts how the death of their spouse has affected them. It is called a free kill by the hospital because they cannot be sued by their adult children.       

I know this from personal experience. My grandfather had a rt side neck resection. He should have been on nothing by mouth for nutrition.  He was guven a full plate of baked chicken and sides. He was not aware of his dietary restrictions. He only knew he was hungry.  He began to eat and chocked until it was to late. He was placed on a ventilator in ICU and after realizing his life was over. I made the horrible decision to remove the ventilator.  He died holding my hand. All this occurred after I caught the meal at lunch and was reassured his dietary would be corrected..I was also denied permission to stay over night in progressive care. All of this could have been avoided. The hospital owened up to it and reassured me they changed their whole way of making sure dietary matches surgery protocols and Dr orders. This will help future patients but not my grandfather. My point is no hospital should be able to get away with this with zero repercussions. My grandfather was a deputy sheriff and retired heavy equipment operator for the city of Pensacola. An amazing son, husband,  father and grandfather. He deserved better. 

Someone needs to stop these so called FREE KILLS its to protect the insurance company and hospitals. This happens way more than people realize. Just imagine if it was your loved one killed by negligence and your lawyer said oh the hospital calls this a FREE KILL.
