DOCTOR TELLS PATIENT IF SHE DOESN’T QUIT FIGHTING THEM, SHE WILL SHOVE THE VENT BACK DOWN HER THROAT
Power of Attorney Document Taken from Family and Doctor Will Not Update Them on Patient’s Condition
I lost 80 pounds in 21 days. I was held against my will and was told I would be sent to a long-term care facility. The doctor took my medical Power of Attorney away from my family and would not update them about my condition.
We had to hire a private healthcare agency to remove me from the hospital. They would not let me leave against medical advice and they would not release me directly to my family. One travel doctor told me if I didn’t quit fighting them, she would shove the vent back down my throat.
I was not offered help with eating, which I needed because I suffered severe nerve damage while hospitalized. After leaving Tanner Medical (Tanner), I had to spend two months in Wellstar Kennestone for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) I contracted while at Tanner. I had drain tubes in my right lung for two months after leaving Tanner.
