Can I sue an ER for releasing me without treatment for sepsis and pneumonia?

Question Details: I went to the E.R. complaining of shortness of breath, fever and overall body pain. They took my vitals, checked me in, and told me it was anxiety. They released me with no testing or treatment. Several hours later, I went to a different E.R. by ambulance, for which they discovered I was in fact sepsis with pneumonia. They immediately admitted me to the intensive care unit, where I was treated for 6 days followed by 14 more days in the hospital and then released to recover.
