I am a selff-employed professional with a psychiatric disability for which I take medication. Sometime back I became physically ill and had to go to a local emergency room. The ER doc inquired as to me meds & disability. He gave me a non-problematic med, after which time I refused further drugs due to feeling sedated. The doc talked me into a second drug and gave it without informed consent and in my opinion without consideration of my disability. Had I known what it was I would have adamantly refused it because I developed a severe brain reaction to the drug. I was left unsupervised for 2 hours and was refused remedial treatment by a tech. I now have permanent brain damage and a second psychiatric disability.
Aside from the malpractice issues, I want to know if my civil rights were violated due to the consent/treatment issues. Thank you, Mary - Arizona

My response:

Unless the doctor tied you up, gagged you, and locked the door behind him, your Civil Liberties have not been violated.

This is strictly a matter of potential medical malpractice. See an attorney specializing in that field of law.
