What is the statute of limitations on medical malpractice?

Question Details: About 5 years ago, my blood pressure was high. My husband took me to the ER where we live. A PA took me off all my med's except my blood pressure med. They then replaced them with different med's; they were anti-depressant, anxiety, pain and muscle relaxants. I went to see a doctor in another state because my blood pressure was still running high. The doctor told me, my husband, my son and my daughter that no one in the ER is not to suddenly take or replace any med's, especially in an ER. He told us that I could have died. I went through so much with having to see a mental health doctor and trying to readjust med's. I haven't been the same since that all happened. I don't know if it's too late to do anything about it since it's been 5 years.
