MARK TRAINA vs. LAKEVIEW REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER and ICU NURSE RAY JENNINGS

What happens when those we hire to HELP U.S., HURT U.S.?

This is my story:

To: LOUISIANA PATIENT COMPENSATION PANEL – Fax: 225-342-1057

From: Mark Anthony Traina
I am seeking compensation for mental anguish, pain and suffering, post-traumatic stress, medical malpractice, past, present and future medical expenses, as well as, loss of income over the past year and loss of income in the future!

My name Mark Anthony Traina – Patient

I seek medical malpractice compensation from the Lakeview Regional Medical Center LLC and
ICU Nurse Ray Jennings – Plaintiffs

Dates of malpractice: 04-27-2015 and 04-28-2015

I underwent OPEN HEART SURGERY at LAKEVIEW REGIONAL HOSPITAL on 04-27-2015; 2-hours after surgery I woke up in the ICU at 12:30 AM on 04-28-2015, with Nurse Ray Jennings telling me to “MAN UP”, “STOP ACTING LIKE A LITTLE GIRL” and him telling me, “WHAT DID YOU EXPECT, YOU JUST HAD OPEN HEART SURGERY”! Needless to say I was intubated during that time period and was unable to respond to Nurse Jennings verbal taunts! My right shoulder had been severely injured at some point in pre-opt, or the surgical procedure, and Nurse Jennings refused to provide me with a pen and paper so that I could write down exactly what was ailing me; specifically my right shoulder! Nurse Jennings response to me was, “I AM NOT GOING THERE WITH YOU”, as he walked out of my ICU room, he said, and I quote, “I AM OFF TO SAVE MORE LIVES”!

After the breathing tubes were removed from my mouth, the first words out of my mouth were, “YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE F*****G WITH”! Nurse Ray Jennings response to me in front of the Nurse assisting him in removing the breathing tubes was, “I REALLY DON’T GIVE A S**T”! I begged Nurse Jennings to call my Wife, but he refused, telling me “I AM NOT GOING TO INCONVIENCE YOUR WIFE AT 3:30 AM”! Fortunately for me another nurse heard my repeated pleas for my Wife and came into my ICU Room and told Nurse Jennings, “EITHER YOU ARE GOING TO CALL MR. TRAINA’s WIFE OR I AM”. Nurse Ray Jennings response to the Nurse was, “HE IS MY PATIENT AND I’LL DO WHATEVER I WANT”!

Moments later I could hear Nurse Jennings standing in my door way talking to my Wife on the phone an asking her whether or not I was easily agitated. He then assured her that I was doing fine, and that she should get some rest and return to the Hospital later in the morning.

A few moments after Nurse Jennings got off the phone with my Wife, the nurse who assisted him in removing my breathing tubes came up and said, I have called your Daughter’s Phone and have her Voice Messaging Recording on if you would like to leave her a message. I spoke into the phone saying, “PLEASE COME BOBBEE, PLEASE COME, I AM SCARED OF THIS NURSE AND I FEEL LIKE I’M DYING”!

An hour later my Wife and Daughter arrived at the Hospital. The first thing that my Daughter said to me was, “WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE YOU FEEL MORE CONFORTABLE?” I said, “MY RIGHT SHOULDER IS KILLING ME, DO YOU THINK THAT YOU CAN FIND ME A PILLOW TO RAISE IT UP A BIT”, it took 4 small pillows to ease the pain! I also asked Nurse Jennings if I could have something for pain, his response was, “I HAVE GIVEN YOU ALL I CAN, I HOPE YOU DON’T THINK THAT THEY ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU PAIN MEDICINE ALL THE TIME BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT, YOU WOULD NEVER WANT TO GET UP OUT OF THE BED IF THEY DID”! During that time period Nurse Jennings was standing in the door way telling my Wife, “I HAVE CARED FOR MANY PATIENTS OVER THE PAST 20-YEARS, MOST OF THEM WERE ABLE TO GO HOME IN FOUR TO FIVE DAYS, BUT I DON’T SEE THIS HAPPENING WITH HIM” My Wife asked him why and he said, “HE IS NOT COOPERATIVE”!

My daughter heard Nurse Jennings telling his Replacement Nurse, “GOOD LUCK WITH THAT ONE”! Before Nurse Jennings left he came into my room and said to me, “I AM SORRY IF I WAS A MEAN NURSE, BUT WHEN I LEAVE HERE I WILL BE TAKING YOU WITH ME”! He also told me in front of my Wife that he could attach the Pulse Meter Line to the bottom of my ear lobe, saying “BUT THAT WOULD MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE A LITTLE GIRL”! Nurse Jennings then shook my hand and left for the day! I must say that I was never so happy to see anyone leave in my whole life. During my stay in the LRMC, I reported this incident to my Heart Doctor Martha Carr (985) 871-8227, my Heart Surgeon Dr. Gregory Groglio (985)-726-0026 Director of the ICU Peggy Verlander and LRMC Chief Executive Officer Bret Kolman (985) 867-3800.

I know that what Nurse Ray Jennings did to me hindered my recovery and has caused me a great deal of pain and suffering. It is a miracle that I did not go into cardiac arrest during the time I was under his care. Since Surgery three of my bypasses have collapsed, and on three separate occasions, I’ve had to have stents installed to open up my clogged arteries. I also suffered a Splenic Infarction on 07-13-2015. My Wife rushed me to Slidell Urgent Care where the Staff Physician diagnosed me and sent me to Slidell Memorial Hospital for treatment. I stayed until 07-18-2015. I am currently being treated psycho tropically for depression, mood swings, suicidal ideations, a sleep disturbance and a post-traumatic stress disorder.

A formal complaint against ICU Nurse Ray Jennings was filed with LRMC HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATORS on 05-08-2015, and an internal hospital investigation was allegedly ensued. It should be noted that no one at the LRMC ever interviewed me or any of my family members, but they did tell me that they had reported this incident to the LOUISIANA DEPARTMENT of HEALTH and HOSPITALS. I also reported this incident to the LOUISIANA STATE BOARD of NURSING on 05-08-2015, the Investigator assigned to my case is Theresa Lockhart, and she can be reached at 225-755-7570.

FACT: We cannot allow Medical Care Providers to treat Patients with such callousness in the State of Louisiana. Callousness on the part of a highly trained medical professional that caused me long-term pain and suffering, as well as, a horrific medical procedural outcome.

ICU Hospitalization Tied To PTSD By Rick Nauert PhD New research discovers post-traumatic stress disorder can occur after a stay in an intensive care unit. PTSD is often associated with warfare, major catastrophes and assault, not hospitalization. However, in a new study Johns Hopkins researchers found the disorder is present in almost one-quarter of patients who survive a critical illness and stay in the intensive care unit (ICU). Investigators also identified possible triggers for PTSD and indicated a potential preventive strategy: having patients keep ICU diaries. The findings will be published in a forthcoming issue of Critical Care Medicine. “PTSD… Read more »
