What to do if I thnk that a hospital and/or doctors were responsible for my daughters death?

Question Details: She was transferred to this hospital to have a PDA ligation fixed. She got staff infection while there. Had a new infection every other week. We brought her home. She was on oxygen and an apnea monitor. She died 6 days later. The monitor never went off until she died. The autopsy showed she died of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. She had been diagnosed with this at the hospital but we had never been informed. The coroner also said that there was no evidence of her ever having surgery on heart and the left side of her heart was bigger than the other. Also, the doctor or nurse never told me or my husband signs to look for if something was wrong due to the diagnosed disease.
