Tiffany Grieser started this petition to Governor Ron DeSantis and

The state of Florida has a Wrongful Death Act (Statutes 768.16-768.26) that protects doctors from being held responsible for their own negligence.  


What this law states is that any person who dies from a medical malpractice, who is not married and does not have a child under the age of 25, the doctors and hospitals cannot be held responsible. They also are not responsible if your child is 25 or over and not married. You as a parent can not get justice for your children! Ridiculous! 


This picture was 3 months in….as you can see my father was a vegetable over a valve replacement??? Here’s my story….

My father just turned 62 and needed a heart valve replacement. On day of surgery I asked surgeon will everything be ok. He reassured me he’s done thousands of these and most of the people that have this done has several other health problems and came out fine so with my dad I had nothing to worry about. 

Surgery was done and Dr. came out said everything was great. Forward a couple days… my father was still in ICU and on ventilator. I kept asking why and got a run around. Demanded to speak to Dr.! He came put my fathers X-rays up on screen knowing I don’t know what I’m looking at but continuing to tell me everything looked perfect. He lied! My father continued to stay in hospital for 5 months on and off ventilator. Nurses, and Drs kept giving me a run around. They never turned him unless I screamed about it. I had to massage his body myself! I walked in to my father being tied up and gasping for air. Supposedly he got out of bed and was on floor for 10 min with an alarm on bed!!! He then was sent to icu on ventilator again! They refused a feeding tube for 5 months!!! They refused water for 5 months!! They tortured him!

I began to realize they were killing him into month 3 and talked to head people of hospital and they immediately got involved but lied too. They were trying to send him home and he couldn’t walk or talk so I refused. Miraculously, the next day I walked into everyone clapping as I walked through door telling me he just walked. Feeling very confused, I went in talked to my dad and yes he walked and talked so I agreed to take him home. I also want to add we were put on the floor where the rich pay cash to be with big screen TV’s, refrigerators, couches, and granite! They were trying to shut me up! I believe they gave him drugs to get him to walk and talk so I would leave cause I was causing such a scene cause within 6 hours my father was vomiting non stop, could not stand or talk and I had ambulance take him to a different hospital, which is where I found out that the valve that was replaced was too small and if the Dr would have went back in that next day when he got X-ray he would be alive today. They also said the Dr clearly saw the valve was too small! Instead of saving his life he decided to let him die and tried to kill him off faster by giving him no water or food!!

The second hospital said it was insane and immediately gave him a feeding tube. They worked hard for two weeks to save him but it was too late. I lost my father over a lazy Dr that knew he had no wife and knew I was his only child!! Florida is the only state that  protects Doctors and hospital like this. It doesn’t make sense! These Doctors that do this should be held accountable! It wasn’t just him involved. It was the nurses also and other Doctors. They all should be held accountable for a part in his death. We need this law changed immediately for our loved ones that are still here. You may think you will never be in this situation but if I was in that situation you can too.  There are a lot of families going through this with their hands tied too. We want justice and our loved ones deserve it!! Please sign this petition and help me get this law changed. This is how we can start controlling the issue in Florida of doctors killing patients over laziness! Weird that only Florida has this law! We need to do this together. It’s the only way we can get it done. Please Please sign the petition. It only takes a minute to sign to save your parent or child over 25! Let’s do this!!!

PLEASE SHARE THIS ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA! If we don’t get this out there we will never win this! I promise you that if I get everyone’s help in signing and sharing it everywhere on social media I will never stop fighting for this! Again, I can’t do it without you!
