I was isolated.refuse my urine.Dr not want drug identified.I was ER in 2008. ER ignored reaction to antibiotic.and no urine.2009 IV bag never in my arm.Do not treat her for shock or anything. Nurse, "are you angry." I said, No, why? She left. Gave me pause 7000 bill. I'm docile condition/ hearing and seeing good. guards.no drink, towels or soap. The Male guard followed me to bathroom. please stay outside bathroom. Lockdown. new guards against my door inside? This doctor had something to prove into my room next day hand me drug to lose lucidness.Why? He said, you didn't have shock, you liar and he kept poking me pushed me down on the bed. I got up and said. What are you doing in my hospital room. You're not my doctor. Why are you here.He said to me causing me to almost go into another kind of shock, He said, See that building over there. He said, I am going to have you committed for the rest of your life. Why? He must be disgruntled.how can a stranger to me acquire that much hate for a little woman. I'm basicallly a very strong woman of character but this was a maniac. He said psychiatrist be in an hour. he will put you away...What I know now he insinuated himself in my ER He Shouted at the guard. Get out, he shouted..Stayed awake all night..He left. The psychiatrist came in.My son was with me as soon as that other doctor left. He walked in.The new doctor spoke to me a few niutes and said he didn't think there was any problem with me or a need for him. New Dr. said, get the records and see what they say about you. He left. I was released promptly.De Monterio got very angry later forged the psche's name and sent out alert to all hospitals. Do not treat. Same on private physicians data base. I can't get any help in Northen Cal maybe entire state.
