Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital Stories

Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital: "I went to Arlington Memorial by ambulance on the early morning of the 19 of 'April. I was not confused or on excessive drugs, but I chad been awake for finals and had been taking some diet pills. And had smoked a little cannabis but I was not like stupid. My nosey neighbor, is a crazy bored lady who I blew off earlier and wouldn't give her 20.00 and about three hours after the Grand Prairie police came to my apt and asked me the date and I could not remember the date. I decided to go to the hospital because the other alternative they offered was not good that being jail, so figuring I was going to be released soon and I was not in the risk or on a 5150 call the I was able to pick whatever hospital I wanted I chose to go to Arlington Memorial, I wish I would not of, I was completely degraded and demoralized and treated so undignified. I was made to feel dirty and nasty because that is the words the nurse told me as she cut off my clothes and gave me a catheter foe no reason when I had walked in there, and had remembered the date and was not in any type of psychotic stupor. Nurse Hillary Cummins continuously raised my gown to reveal my pubic area to the men that were in the er I dismissed it at first until she kept raising it and did this over 7 times and made my vagina a topic between her and several men in over and over. I asked for her supervisor and she gets Dr. Borelli, asks if their is a possibility of pregnancy. I was not thinking of any thing else nor was I abusive because I was worried about the effects of the pills and what it may caused to a possible baby, I objected to the nurse insulting me and showing my private area I objected to her doing it and the doctor comes and says you aren't going to be verbally abusive to my nurse and he start to tie me up and my one leg and the nurse still is showing my area. well I remember a horrific pain and. I woke up 2 days later tied to a hospital bed, I was denied water and food per doctors orders. If it had not been for my boyfriend and my knowledge of the law, Id be dead. I was sedated for no reason, the moment I'd wake up Id be sedated again, Now if this was a psychiatric call Id of been seen by a shrink, I gained a moment of clarity only after I was pushd back to bed after the staff told me I could not be on my feet. I knew something was off and DID NOT FEEL SAFE, the only question they asked my boyfriend of 6 years was if I had family, over and over again. He brought me food and gave me water. After the third day I am saying only God could have woken me out of that medically crazed haze because they had just given me something in my IV. I told the nurse when my boyfriend came that I was leaving ,she attempted o sedate me and I told her no So they were attempting to tie me up again, nope so they called security where he tries to reforce me to cooperate and be drugged and tied up so I asked if I had a 5150hold he said no so I said you cant keep me here. They told my boyfriend to keep me off my feet, due to the sedation, I was not allowed to stand on my own and was told I was not getting any paperwork by the nurse. I got home and my boyfriend carried me from the car to the bed, I slept for hours and tried to go to the bathroom which ids less than 10 feet away, I began to fall, afew hours later the pain was so intense and I looked at my leg and it was purple and my ankle just distorted. I went to Bedford hospital where I was told my ankle was shattered and dislocated. I had no falls and had not walked any where although I didn't notice my leg upon leaving Arlington Memorial because of the sedation, Now Arlington memorial all the employees who were no where on any papers nor would I know there names only because I remember their names and faces from the 19th in which I had arrived but no records of any of the nurses or doctors or their notes until I was admitted on the 20th in which I have no idea why or when. I was given morophine ,lovenox, and Norco, but I was in zero pain, my blood pressure was slightly elevated but not high enough to be a medical issue. A ct scan for what no contrast , and a test that is given for the detection of legioneers disease. They spew toxic encepthalogy my liver is not failing, I didn't huff toluene and the amphetamine result from the diet pills did not cause any toxicity. The head of the orthopedics leaves all his accomplishments abruptly and the other doctors who I could of named but they were only covering for the chair of your orthopedics who was to do a conference on traumatic injuries to the ankle two days after. I guess Tyler is a bustling city.4 people who I named and were named on my records all mysteriously gotten new jobs away from Texas health Arlington. The combination of drugs and the lack of food and water coupled with the laxatives, is the same way they treat end of life patients they are trying to hasten death with. I live with crawling and a complete disability for the rest of my days. And instead of keeping these people from hurting anyone or killing anyone you choose to lie, cover and put other peoples lives in serious jeapordy. " - April
