Is it possible to sue the hospital for medical record tampering? Posted on August 01, 2011

I was taken by ambulance to a local hospital with dizziness that progressed to my right side feeling hot, then difficult to almost impossible speech. long story short, I was having symptoms of a stroke, have risk factors for stroke, but evaluation did not begin for over 2 hours. I was not having a stroke (thankfully!) but possibly suffered from a mild seizure. I obtained a copy of the medical record within a couple of days, but the times are not matching what the hospital is claiming now. can I sue them for medical record tampering? (money would be nice, but I just want to make them follow stroke protocol before someone dies)
