    I was beaten by another patient. What do I do now?

    Do I have rights as a patient when I was in the hospital and beaten up by another patient? Also, the staff is trying to cover it up.

    If there was assault and/or battery in a hospital then it is the staffs responsibility to file a report. If they have neglected to do so, my advice is you need to call the police for help. Then you need to get a lawyer. You have two issues going on here. The first is that another patient intentionally beat you up. The second issue is the staff is trying to hide the case. A lawyer will allow you to file a case against both. Please call 1-800-566-7404 to find a lawyer in your area.
