    I SEE YOU; ICU; Who's Watching Your Love Ones?


    The full story is on this page I created in the name of my father, Curtis James Bentley. I lost my father on 9-15-2012 and the clock is ticking to get answers surrounding his death while on the floor of ICU of a local hospital in my city. I desperately need help in bringing awareness to the care our love ones receive when our backs are turned. Consideration of my story will help bring closure for me.

    The short version: My father was admitted to ICU. I stepped away for about 20 minutes to take a break. I heard a code blue which was not my father's, but a patient in a room next to hi. Upon my return, I found half hanging out the bed, indecent and the worse part, taking his last breaths. He was at the point of death and no one knew, because no one was around!

    I wanna know why their protocol did not have someone monitoring my father's room and everyone else on that floor.

    The hospitals has not provided me with any information. Their last response in, September of 2013 was, "it's under investigation."

    I need to be heard and I need answers and I need closure...
