I was brought to the ER via EMS for respiratory failure. The attending ER Doctor incorrectly diagnosed me as a drug overdose. The physician told 3 of my family members that he was certain I had overdosed on substances. All diagnostics and treatment was delayed. I was kept in the ER, intubated with no other treatment; when they received the Chemical report back (the following day) stating I was negative for substances, the physician apologized to my family for his assumption and then quickly admitted me to ICU for sepsis treatment with IV antibiotics and I was put into a drug induced Coma. The day after I was admitted, they reduced the sedating medications and I was in and out of consciousness. Apparently, they had a Psychiatrist evaluate me a few hours after I initially "woke up", though I was still in and out of consciousness and I do not recall his evaluation. The psychiatrist put in his report, "patient has history of abortion at age 15". I was floored! I have never had an abortion; EVER. I was skocked and humiliated. He also added that I was depressed, and superficial, "sick looking" but alert and oriented - untrue. The psychiatric notes, and the medical discharge summary also notes that my husband is in "recovery" for substance abuse, however patient has no history of illicit use. I do not know why my husband's information is pertinent to my treatment. After the psychiatric evaluation, a speech therapist and physical therapist had to assist me with eating and help me to walk with the use of a walker. I was discharged the morning after the psychiatric evaluation although I could not walk on my own and was complaining of a headache, and was still disoriented. The diagnostics showed I had ascites, gallbladder distention, and a focal fatty lesion on my liver. I had extreamly elevated WBCs and C-reactive protein. These were not cleared upon discharge. Because of my headaches, I returned to the ER 2 days later to receive a "blood patch" to close a whole in my spine resulting from a spinal tap they'd given me. The final diagnosis was: respiratory arrest, resolved & anxiety d/o. Based on this, I feel labeled, ashamed and mistreated. Especially given the false "history of abortion" in the Psych evaluation report. Do I have a case.
