When Alexis Sims, of Las Vegas, went to deliver her son at Sunrise Hospital, she expected ultimate best services and the best doctors on the job. However, her experience turned out to be way low-key than expected, and she has video evidence to back it up.
Alexis’s labor had to be induced for her to deliver, but the doctor who attended to her wasn’t really a serious professional. Her actual doctor was on vacation, so another one called Dr. Frank DeLee was called on to help in her delivery.
When Dr. DeLee came in the room, though, Alex’s mom, Sheree, said she could smell alcohol on his breath. Then Dr. DeLee started talking about how he had just come from happy hour.
“I smelled alcohol,” Sheree recalled. “That’s what preceded the conversation about him coming from the bar. Because I said, ‘Oh, he smells like alcohol.’”
When her epidural started wearing off, the doctor only mocked her weight and called her names instead of helping her feel better. Who does that?!
When things started heading south, Alexis’ mom whipped out her phone and started recording the incident, and what she captured is truly alarming.
“Wasn’t that many people in the bar when I left,” he told one of the nurses.
“I’m sorry. Did you waste a drink?” she asked.
That’s when Sheree noticed something that truly shocked her – DrLee wasn’t even dressed appropriately for his job, he was barefoot and wearing Bermuda shorts!
Then things got even worse.
“I kept telling the doctor, ‘I can feel everything. I think the epidural wore off,’” Alex recalled. “And he’s like, ‘Oh just scoot your fat ass down,’ and, ‘Oh, I bet you wish your doctor would have came back in town.’”
“It was just jaw-dropping,” she said later. “I just couldn’t fathom why all this was going on in the midst of me having a child.”
She’s now using the evidence to sue DeLee, as well as the nurses, who should have intervened when they realized the doctor was not fit to be working.. She wants also to make sure DeLee can’t be in the position to hurt anyone else.
“Someone needs to be accountable,” she said. “And I just feel like, if I don’t speak up for my child, who will?”
