BHC Alhambra Hosptial Complaint - Patients policies should be followed
ROSEMEED, CALIFORNIA -- On 5/18/07 A Dr. at BHC made a threat to my daughter - My daughter stated to me that he said if she refused to be medicated he can keep her here for up to 365 days- this is a clear violation of patients rights - in the handbook they gave me it states A patient has a right not to be threatened by a Dr. for not doing meds- and should never be fear she wont be released if she doesn't... MY daughter feels like "she has to say ok to the meds because he said he wont release me mom "and I want to go home" not to be medicated is a right each patient has this DR. belcos should not be threatening a patient for not wanting to be medicated and he would not budge on saying any other way but meds. his way or shes not getting out. As for school I am having her home schooled just since march...because of an attempted rape on her by the boy she went to school with she didn't want to go back to school there, home-school was an option for the three months left... She will be going back into a school in sept... w/her IEP in place and he doesn't like that.. He just saw her 10 min. at most for an evaluation in that 10 min. He determined my daughter was not going to get out because she denied meds- and he is going by that he did not release her after the 72 hr hold... and has refused to talk to me , her mother since 12:50 on 5/18/07- Nor have they handed me any papers or guids on what I can or cannot bring to my child and what is her hospital plan and what are they doing for her?
They also have denied me the right to see my child on visitation- as my work does coincides with their visitation time- I wanted to have lunch with my daughter at 1pm instead of 5:30 pm as I would be at work at 5:30pm . I wanted to spend a little time with my daughter - they also have refused to give me information or call me as I request information on my daughters care or needs each day I have been able to visit hr and request it.. they have not telephoned me on my cell nor my home on my daughters care.
I am told they have 4 days to get a hearing set up at that time she is aloud whom she wants there.. I asked her to ask for a advocate and an attorney and me her mom... since I am raising my girls myself-
This Dr. did not even hear anything I wanted to say concerning my daughter and what led to these thoughts she typed on the net.. He wouldn't let me explain nothing. To me this is a clear violation of patients rights. My daughter says there are fights between the girls there- and a lot of yelling of the staff and they threaten to lock u up in solitary a lot here mom.. she said to me...
there is that enough info?
