Hello. My mother had a fall and broke her femur in Lisbon. She was first sent to the central hospital where she languished for days on a gurney in a hallway as it was over capacity. Then they sent her to Curry Cabral Hospital. She has heard that they will not perform surgery until next Tuesday: a full 8 days after her injury. I am at home in the United States trying to help her and my father. Can anyone advise on medical evacuations or what recourse we have? My parents are very frightened and depressed. I do not know what to do or how to help them.
