Armstrong visits cancer facilities as well as the hospital where his son was attacked, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Two months after the incident, he told ABC News it was like going through a nightmare.
„It’s very scary. It’s very different,“ he told the Los Angeles Times. „There is no one I trust. I trust nobody.“
The Times report said he’s concerned there are more cases that may not be reported, so authorities can focus on what’s happening on the street — and whether that leads to a more-public outcry.
„It’s a really important question to ask,“ said Dr. Joseph Calo, the chief of trauma and infectious disease at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. „It’s something they need to examine and decide whether the police and paramedics are being effective.“
Dr. John J. McShane, president of the National Association of EMS Physicians, says a major problem is that hospitals are reluctant to share details about what’s happening with patients, while patients are reluctant to talk to police or take a hospital safety course.
„Patients are scared,“ McShane told the Associated Press, adding that most cases go unreported because the hospital only gives a certain number of hours and if a pati바카라사이트ent is injured, that patient may not talk to police.
The Los Angeles Times story says that one night last month, Patton had no idea his son had been attacked by someone with a knife. He called police at 3 a.m., but said the police officer there, who knew of him, did not want the attack to turn into an active crime scene.
One hour later, Patton received a call from one of the hospital’s emergency medical technicians. The technician advised him to come outside and have jarvees.comhis wounds bandaged.
The paramedics did just that — leaving Patton’s son on the ground.
Patton says he was shaken by that and said he was never able to fully assess the situation as the officer tried to call 우리카지노off the paramedics.
Patton said his son suffered a broken jaw, five broken teeth, cuts to his face and a broken arm. He added that he would still like to share the details with police, but that he doesn’t think the police would help him with that now because he is scared.
