This delayed my recovery and evaluations. I had a heart operation - October 2016 for removal of a tumor on the mytrial valve. Following the heart surgery I developed the infections and was in ICU for a week (+) then still quarantined but transferred to the floor where I was only allowed to be ambulatory in my room, I tried walking outside and was yelled at though there was really no room to exercise in the room.

What was the outcome of the medical harm issue? "Near Miss" - no injury
