Is it routine for doctors to say a patient requires psychological/psychiatric evaluation just...
because some-one refuses their treatment?
Awoken suddenly in the middle of the night after tiring op. Put on a drip, had a nebulizer shoved in my face, had covers dragged off and a needle for another blood sample stuck in my arm. Quite without being asked.
When i refused the second infusion, because dialysis was coming the next day. Though they delayed it to try to prove a point. Still no complications.
I consider this pouncing an infringement on my person. And shows a lack of manners and professionalism on the "doctor" and his juniors part.
But I did not appreciate his accusation.
Some doctors are control freaks.
And once you come across some-one like that the rest, like your head specialist etc. can be persistent little b****rs in trying to drive home this intention of their colegue. It isn't really 'caring' but keeping rank, and making an example of the weak in the hopes of scaring the strong. I'm guessing that you few visitors, if any and keep yourself to yourself. He would've sensed vulnerability. What's more such hints may be on the part of your records that they really don't like you seeing!
Have you ever tried gaining access to your medical records. Chances are in their attempts to put you off you will be met with something resembling The Spanish Inquisition. And if you eventually do gain access it won't be all of it. More what they want you to see.
Truth is doctors have too much power, aren't regulated well enough. The complaints proceedure is long and drawn out, and pathetically inadequate. Several people will die, and they still might not realise anything. How they caught dr. Shipman remains a mystery. There must be some good out there if you can find it.
Wow! I thought I had an axe to grind.
Never a truer word spoken nonetheless. Thanks.
If that ever happens again you have to ask for a patient advociate, every hospital has one. I went through much when my dad was fighting his cancer and we got a patient advociate to help us get through some of the rough spots.

In my 20+ years of experience with psychiatrists, I've had doctors who have been very willing to take the patient's input and some who have been reluctant.Sometimes we become aware of a medication that has worked well...

Would you feel comfortable with a doctor who you knew was a smoker?It wouldn't worry me, but some people I suspect would have less faith in a doctor who they knew had such a dangerous habit/addiction. If you know your...
